Baking with Julia assignment was Chocolate Truffle Tartlets. The host blogs (which feature the recipe) are Steph of A Whisk and a Spoon, Spike of Spike Bakes, Jaime of Good Eats and Sweet Treats, and Jessica of Cookbookhabit. They all have lovely pictures of the finished product and one has a video of Julia Child in action.
I made my tartlets for Valentine's day. The recipe is for six tartlets and there are six people in my family, a perfect match.
Over all the tartlets were pretty good. I was a bit disappointed with the crust, I may have overdone them a smidgen and I think the crust was too thick. If I make these again I'll try to keep that in mind. The filling, on the other hand, was scrumptious! Rich and chocolatey, the only thing I would do differently would be to chop things a little bit finer. The chunks tasted great, but it made the filling a bit awkward and lumpy to work into the shells.
I'm not sure if I'll make these again, but they were fun to bake and eat!
