It is only Tuesday but boy have I had my bake on already! I have much to share this week but today I am going to talk about these cute, and very sweet, rich, chocolatey tartlets. I must confess, I’ve had the cookbook “Baking With Julia” for several years now. I found while living in Florida at a 2nd hand book store.
I am fond of anything Julia, especially baking. I imagined this cookbook would be a challenge. If you are not familiar with any of Julia’s cookbooks then I suggest you do, you are missing out. I’ve made several recipes that have been very involved and I think that is why her baking books are something I visit rarely, I do enjoy a challenge but sometimes I do not have hours to devote to yummy things.
I was excited to join the “bake along” group, “Tuesdays With Dorie; Baking With Julia“. It is a huge baking experiment for me and I find it exciting, a way to expand my baking knowledge, share with others who are participating and I am sure I will have some rough times baking through this cookbook but I welcome the challenge!
I found these tartlets very easy & enjoyable to make. I did not change anything in the recipe. I made the chocolate dough on one day, baked the tartlets on the 2nd day and then I finished them this morning. I actually ended up using smaller tart pans & I only had two of them. I made a total of 6. The recipe was pretty straight forward and I found I had no issues. They have a wonderful taste and texture. My husband also loved them and said some ice cream or cool whip would taste great with these on the side.
