TWD: Soft Chocolate Raspberry Tart

Hello fellow bakers! It's been a while since I've posted and it's good to be back. Thanks sisters for covering for me while having baby #4!

Unfortunately, my camera can't be found and my four-year-old assures me that the twin two-year-olds are to blame. So, no pictures as of now. I'll post them if I find the camera in the next 24 hours.

The tart crust was buttery and yummy. I don't have a food processor, so I used a pastry blender and it seemed to work just fine. I used ground pecans in the recipe and thought it was great. The chocolate raspberry portion of the tart came together nicely, but when it baked up it wasn't as pretty as I thought it would be. I questioned whether the tart would truly be soft and creamy, but was it ever!! This tart was delicious! I made it for April's "birthday cake" and it was a hit...with the adults! I think it was a little too rich for the kiddos, but we sure enjoyed it.

I love the way Rachelle served her tart with shaved chocolate and whipped cream. Check out her blog for the recipe and...pictures!

Found the camera!
