Replied to chocolate-honey-almond tartlets

May 18, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

It says it makes 16 mini tartlets, not 24. You can always scale the recipe up to make more. The crust will be a little crumbly until you put the ganache on it. That is what will really hold it together.

Overall, it was a good recipe. I used Meyer lemons instead of regular lemons and they turned out great! I also easily doubled the recipe to make two loaves. However, mine took more like 75 min. to bake (yes, I have an oven thermometer. I also noted that the lemon syrup didn't soak into the entire cake, just the top. I think next time I will do wha"

Made this tonight...it was a very good basic "pot roast" recipe. The vinegar did help to tenderize the meat. I bought a 2.5 lb. chuck roast and used half of a red onion, but kept the vinegar and gravy directions the same (so we could have a lot leftover for mashed potatoes). My husband loved this and said, "THIS is a Sunday dinner!""

This was a great basic recipe...I leave out the pistachios and raisins (personal preference), add more chocolate, orange zest and cinnamon...but the basics are perfect. I even had to make this in huge quantities for a church function and it multiplied flawlessly...very unusual for most recipes. Suggest using whole milk ricotta and draining it in ...

Made this for a soup potluck...it was a favorite among many! I made it the day before and used an immersion blender to puree slightly. Then I reheated the next day. I thought it was a little too spicy for my taste, so I added a 1/4 c. of heavy cream at the end and it toned down the spice and gave it a very silky texture that everyone loved!""

Just made this last night...I kept the temp at 325* but added 20 min. to the bake time. I made the chocolate syrup with just 5 min. to go in baking. I had mine at a rolling boil for a solid 5 min. It reduced by half, no crystallization. I added vanilla and chocolate extracts after I removed it from the heat and poured over my punctured cake. Cove...

Awesome! Just made them for a July 4th picnic. I made one batch using raspberry preserves and one with blueberry preserves. Both were a hit! The only thing I added was a teaspoon of cinnamon to the crumble mixture. I also used a brownie pan instead of a square pan, which resulted in a little less bottom crust, which I loved! Would be fantastic in "
