TWD - Chocolate Cream Tart
Chocolate Cream Pie. The words bring back another memory from my diner-filled childhood. Rich and creamy, an industrial-sized can of Dream Whip and a flaky crust.
This week Dorie has presented the classic chocolate pie. But where's my flaky crust? I know Dorie's crust recipe. It's almost the same as the chocolate shortbread I make for the holidays. Isn't that chocolate overkill? What will offset all that sweetness?
The answer is, happily, nothing. Each properly chilled bite of this dessert is pure chocolate lovers' delight! Creamy, crusty, rich but not overly sweet. Memories are made of this.
My only complaint was that it disappeared before I got a second piece.
Many thanks to Kim of Scrumptious Photography, one of my favourite blogs, for choosing this dessert!
