So, I was really excited when the second recipe picked for Tuesdays with Dorie was Chocolate Truffle Tartlets. I made these for my Bunco group a few weeks ago, knowing we would be traveling toward the end of February, and wanting to have them done before we left. These were a delicious hit with all of my friends.
Making these was pretty easy. I made the crust the night before I planned on baking them. Everything went into the food processor, then into the refrigerator until the next morning. While mixing the pastry it seemed a bit dry so, I added water a tablespoon at a time until it reached the right consistency. The pastry was a lovely, workable dough that was full of chocolate flavor. The truffle filling was smooth and creamy. I used Amaretti cookies and thought it would add some crunch but, the cookies were hardly noticeable. These decadent, chocolaty tartlets were melt in your mouth delicious. My Bunco ladies really enjoyed these and so did I!
