I have to apologize to all the TWDers for this late post. I have been working tirelessly on a very important (and totally awesome) project for something that I really, really want. And when I say tirelessly, I mean three-to-four-hours-of-sleep-a-night-and-then-living-at-my-desk tirelessly. But if I get said thing that I really, really want, I'm going to go all Johnny Weir style and dress up in sequins and do triple luxes or whatever they are called.
So yeah, I'm tired. And this post will be short (FINALLY! A Short post! You're all probably thinking, "Yeah, right." And you're all probably right).
This was a tasty tart but maybe not my favorite. And I HATE saying bad things about anything Dorie creates, or anything any fellow blogger picks, or any dessert in general, because really, that's just blasphemy. I don't have anything bad to say, per say, it just wasn't my favorite. But it was still warm when I had a bite, so I'm going to give it a second bite when it cools down.
The crust, as always, was tasty. And chocolate and raspberries are a winning combination. But I think the filling was a bit too soft in my opinion. I was hoping for a more truffle-like texture, but I think the use of the eggs gave it the texture it has.
I did, however, LOVE the cocoa whipped cream that I made to top this tart. I'm going to make it all of the time and use it as a pillow.
Wow. I'm tired. I don't even know what I'm writing right now. My mind is so jumbled that I just realized I actually titled this "Soft Raserry and Pear Tart" (actually spelled Raserry). Yes, it is St. Patrick's Day. No, I am not drunk.
Check out Rachelle of Mommy I'm Hungry for what I'm sure is actually a delicious tart that I'll love in an hour or two from now. Or after a nap.
Seriously, go look at the photo on her page. WOW.
And check out the rest of TWD!
