It’s Tuesday, and that means it’s time for Tuesdays with Dorie. This week Carla of Chocolate Moosey chose Chocolate-Crunched Caramel Tart, which is available on her blog or in Dorie Greenspan’s fabulous book, Baking: From My Home to Yours on pages 355-357.
Have I ever said how much I love Dorie’s Sweet Tart Dough? It’s not sweet tart in the sense that it’s sweet and tart, it’s a tart dough that’s sweet. :) It’s so easy to work with and I don’t get the pie dough phobia that I get every time I try to make and roll out a pie dough. No this dough is delicious, has just the right amount of sweetness, and it’s tender without falling apart.
Now, make some homemade dark caramel and chop some nuts, spread them in that fabulous tart dough, top with rich bittersweet chocolate ganache, and you have this week’s tempting treat.
Some of the TWD bakers said that they had to much ganache. I actually put as much as I could into the tart dough, chilled it for 20 minutes, then added the rest and spread it around the top. I chilled for the remaining 10 minutes and it worked perfectly, no left over ganache.
My pictures are crap this week. Hopefully I can snap a few more in the daylight, but wanted to make sure I got this post up. UPDATE: Added new photos, but still aren’t the greatest. :-p
Be sure to check out how the other TWD bakers faired!
