A visit to my parents' new place tempted me away from my kitchen over the long weekend, so this Tuesday we have...more mobile food! Dorie's Chocolate Truffle Tartlets were worth every effort to take them on the road. I made the dough early last week, popped it in the freezer until departure morning, then tucked it into my road bag with the eggs, butter, chocolates, mini tart pans, and, of course, Baking with Julia.
I made 16 mini tarts out of the recipe, set them on a quarter sheet pan and baked them just until set, but still a bit jiggly. The contrast of the ever so slightly sweetened cookie-like crust with the truffle filling was delicious -- especially the bite with the sea salt flake that found its way onto my dessert plate somehow. The tarts were even better on day 2, after an overnight rest in the refrigerator. (I did not add the amaretti, but am excited to hear results from the TwDers!)
