Soft Chocolate and Raspberry Tart

It's pi day! And in honor of 3.14 (and because it was this week's Tuesdays with Dorie choice), I made this beautiful chocolate raspberry tart.

Here are the fresh raspberries sprinkled onto the baked crust.

And the two kinds of chocolate chopped fine.

And my piece of pie with a pi symbol on the whipped cream!


  1. Alas, these pictures don't do justice to the luxuriously smooth and rich tasting filling of the tart. It's altogether delightful with just a spoonful of soft whipped cream. Even though there's nothing particularly adult about the ingredients (no alcohol, for example), it's still not a children's dessert. The combination of fresh raspberries and chocolate is quite sophisticated. I wish I hadn't eaten so much dinner beforehand! It would be a glorious celebration of summer when raspberries are in season.

  2. I totally giggled at your "PI" symbol written into the whipped cream. Hilarious! Glad you enjoyed the tart. Happy belated PI Day!
