Mine came out rather nicely, even though I refused to try to roll out the dough and just pressed it into the tart pan like I learned from Dorie Greenspan (the D in Tuesdays With Dorie) from her Sweet Tart Dough recipe. I must admit, this recipe was not as hard as I thought it would be and I managed to make the dough after work and the filling after the next work day. It all came together just in time for my Friday night book club! The only substitution I made was using Girl Scout Thin Mints instead of the biscotti. I did not buy any biscotti and just had to wing it! It was a really good substitute, too, in my humble opinion!
Here is how it went:
|Me pressing the dough into the pan. Wrapped and froze it to bake the next day.|
|While the crust was cooling, I mixed the filling together. Another forgiving recipe, because I guessed on everything; the whipping of the egg yolks, measuring out chocolate, and folding.|
|And with all the guessing including the baking time (filling never seemed to be set enough), miraculously everything came out just fine!|
|My crust was a little crumbly, but it did taste cookie-like.|
|It kind of looks like a giant Reese's Peanut Butter Candy.|
Next time, I will use the biscotti and try to roll the dough out. There is always next time and I am pretty sure I will be make this again.
