Cookies-and-Cream Tartlets

Tuesdays with Dorie
Baking Chez Moiimg_20190512_181723746

This was the perfect dessert to top off our Mother’s Day dinner. As I was making these, my husband watched me cut little squares of foil to cover the six tartlets and he said “it would be much easier to make one big one”. He is right it would be easier but not as good to look at. I think little looks like it came out of a bake shop.

As I have mentioned before, I bake my tart dough at 375 degrees and not 400. I feel I have a better bake that way. I always choose to do Dorie’s optional ingredients. I used both Biscoff spread and Nutella. I made three tartlets with Biscoff and three with Nutella. I also chose Dorie’s direction to cut my cookies so I would have recognizable pieces.

The reviews. Everyone enjoyed the tarts, what’s not to like chocolate and whipped cream. My husband and I thought that the tart shell and cookies was a bit too much.  It was like eating one big cookie. None of us noticed which spread we had on the bottom, I am not sure that added anything to the dish. My son didn’t finish his and my father-in-law had trouble eating it. I don’t think this is going to be a new family favorite. But as always, nice to try a new dessert.

    He he, I made one big one as there was no way I was fussing with the little ones. I couldn’t taste the spread in the bottom of the tart either. However, I did enjoy this one.


  2. I’m sorry these weren’t a hit. I loved them but agree that it might be a bit “much” depending on what else you’ve had for your meal!


  3. I thought it was pretty rich too…but everyone else that had some loved it! I think most people shared it though, so maybe less is more in this case. 🙂

    I’m sorry they weren’t a big hit for you but they sure do look good. I haven’t decided what size I’ll make yet.
