Tuesdays with Dorie – Chocolate Cream Tart

Okay, you guys.  The joke is very funny.  I get it.

It’s 90 degrees here, and you’re having me slave over a hot stove in our poorly-ventilated apartment, air conditioner on the fritz, and for what?

For a chocolatey dessert that won’t quench a single quenchable thing.

Not a quenchable thing.

Don’t get me wrong.  This dessert is nothing short of amazing, and it’s served cold so there’s that.  But where’s the ice cream?  The puddings?  The whatever-doesn’t-make-me-crank-the-ovens-to-400-degreeses?  Get with the program, people.

I christened my brand new food processor, and I like it a lot better than my old one.  Here’s hoping we don’t have any chocolate pudding debacles with this one.

Rachel is engaged.  To me.  If anybody wants to send presents – preferably cookies and/or cakes – please send them to:
