TWD- Chocolate Ice Cream Tart -Catch Up

Back on April 5, 2011 – Jessica of Domestic Deep Thought of the Day chose Coffee Ice Cream Tart on pages 358 and 359.

I think I missed making this with the new baby thing going on.  Daniel is now a rather charming 18 weeks old.

Anyway, with the Dark Chocolate Sorbet we made this week I found something to fill this tart.  The crust was lovely (although a little too much nutmeg perhaps for my taste).

I also loved the tip about melting the chocolate in the base.  I popped my shell covered in chocolate shards  back into the oven for 2 minutes which melted the chocolate so very nicely.  This is a technique I will keep in my bag of tricks from now on.

And therein lies the beauty of the TWD experience.  If I just made 5 recipes from the book I may have never stumbled over this technique.
