Hello chowhounds. I am in a dinner group and was assigned to make Martha Stewart's chocolate pumpkin tart. It was extremely time consuming, caused me 1st degree burns that if they were 3 inches higher on my arms would look like I was suicidal, made me curse and cry and, I feel, should have been accompanied by both a bottle of wine and a ticket to Bellevue.
At the dinner I was anticipating eating a chocolate pumpkin bliss and that all the anguish would be worth it but, after tasting it, it was just good. Everyone there liked it, but they RAVED about the mashed potatoes and the cabbage that both took so much less effort.
I don't mind going the extra mile for a dessert, spending lots on ingredients, or learning new techniques, but this was so not worth it.
Do you have an involved recipe that is actually Bellevue worthy?
