TWD: Chocolate Cream Tart


I've finally mustered up some strength to participate again in a Tuesdays with Dorie selection. I've missed the last two weeks due to first trimester pregnancy "funk", which includes but is definitely not limited to: fatigue, nausea, headaches, heartburn, aversions to lots of smells and lots of foods, and just plain old laziness.


So I decided I needed to get my rear off the couch and bake something. And since Kim of Scrumptious Photography chose the Chocolate Cream Tart, which sounded fabulous, I decided to go for it! I didn't have a tart pan, however, so I opted to instead make a chocolate cream pie.

The pie came together fairly easily and my hubby and I both gave it a thumbs up. I handed the whisk that was covered in chocolate cream to my son and he really enjoyed it. Success!


Thanks to Kim for a great selection! Check out her site for the recipe and absolutely gorgeous photos that will make your mouth water!

That face!! Your son is BEAUTIFUL! Looks like he enjoyed the pastry cream. My guys weren't too crazy about it, but I think they wanted to be. Glad you are feeling better!
