Making Claudia Fleming's White Chocolate Espresso Tart

Candy | Sep 29, 2006 06:07 PM

I made the crust and the base yesterday. The #%$*&#&%$#* crust is in the pan and chilling prior to baking. I will finish the whole thing tomorrow AM. The base has an excellent flavor. I used Green & Block's Organic white chocolate and the chocolate flavor is almost elusive, sort of there it is...or is it?

Now, for any of you novice bakers, do not think of making any of her tarst requiring her chocolate tart crust. See if you can find any other chocolate tart crust recipe, please. This crust is extremely dry and crumbly. You will be frustrated and cursing. You can just barely roll it out with any success and then it will break as you fit it into the pan and you will end up doing lots of patching. You will also really need a tart tamper. I am an experienced home baker and have made many a tart, but this recipe for the shell irritates me to no end. I've got to find another recipe.

Photo and results tomorrow along with yesterday's project, 50 layer Baklava.
