TWD: Chocolate Truffle Tartlets
I come from a line of improvising women. They are renegades. As a result I am terrible at following recipes. When I got up to make this involved creation today I wondered if I could really do it. Suprisingly, the authors of this baking bible make it effortless. From pages 382-383 of Baking with Julia we experimented with David Ogonowski's Chocolate Truffle Tartlets today.
Was it a revelation or disgrace to my resolutions? Just about out of the oven and 2 pieces are gone. Three of us are here, but I am the only one who can hold a fork.
Perhaps I should not have decided not to make it gluten & dairy free. At any rate, this is what I did to make it so
- For the Dough I used a combination of Almond Flour, Arrowroot & Brown Rice Flour and Soy Garden.
The biscotti I used for the Truffle Filling was from our Capuccino Biscotti Mix. Again in the truffle filling, I omitted the vanilla extract and just used 1/4 cup Orange Vanilla Sugar.

If you are looking for a recipe that is a bit simpler, try this Chocolate Mousse.
What are you going to do with 9 egg whites? Try a Financier (they are not all on Wall Street)

If it disappearing, then it must have some merit! It looks good.
