I have some catching up to do! This tardy entry is last Sunday's Slow Bakers selection. Picked by Marcia, this one was a real winner. I deviated slightly by making a bunch of mini tarts instead of one big tart, so that I could bring them to an appetizer party and serve them as a finger food dessert. They were a huge hit.
Here's a closer shot so you can see how gorgeous they were. The crust was sweet and slightly lemony from the lemon zest and the filling was dark, moist and delicious. I think if it was baked as a full size tart and served in wedges that you would get even more of the chocolate flavor. The mini tarts by their nature give you more crust per square inch of filling. Luckily in this case the crust is extremely flavorful. You really can't go wrong either way, I guess.
