Fourth of July Chocolate Fruit Tart

Chocolate Fruit Tart

I know, two desserts on a holiday – what a shock but we all know dessert is better than the meal!  This was a recipe combined from two sources, Emeril Lagasse’s Chocolate Pastry Cream and David Lebovitz French Tart Dough.  I found both recipes were excellent.  I didn’t have a 9 inch tart pan, only a larger one so it was a little skimpy but still good and simple, no rolling, no flour cloud in the kitchen and a nice crisp crust.  I did coat the crust with some melted chocolate and let it harden to keep it from getting soggy when I added the pastry cream.  After that, it was just a matter of placing the fruit on top.

      Thanks, I’m just learning and I just got a great camera from a photographer who was upgrading. It’s a Canon EOS Rebel xsi and I usually use either the 18-55 lense sometimes with a macro filter or a Tamron 28-105 usually outside in the morning or evening.
