Should I? Shouldn't I? Should I? Shouldn't I? I really shouldn't...I have so much to do this week including my final stacked cake for my Wilton class #3....blondies for Karate promotions...a couple of cakes due...but Oh, I really want to. Just to try it. And it so happened, I had a frozen good for almost anything pie crust dough in the freezer...some cream to use up and a baggie of 4 frozen egg yolks. It was calling to be made.
I used the playing around method Dorie suggests in the book...because the chocolate version didn't have enough calories. :) I made a coconut cream by boiling cream with sweetened coconut until it was thick. I used the regular pie crust and baked it in my tart pan. Should have used the pie pan like Dories suggested but I really wanted the tart shape!
After the coconut cream was cool, I spread it on the bottom of the crust then topped it with the bittersweet chocolate cream. A little whipped cream on the top sprinkled with some toasted coconut and OMG!!!
I cut of piece of the tart just to photograph...well I needed to taste it to make sure it was edible....I finished the whole piece. It was that good! Bittersweet chocolate with sweet, smooth coconut cream and a crunchy shortbread-y crust. Heaven!
