My take on this week's recipe:
-Used a sugar cookie recipe for the crust
-Baked it in rectangle pan instead of a tart pan
-Made the chocolate ganache using a higher ratio of chocolate to cream so it would be firmer and therefore cut into bars more easily
-Sprinkled it with chopped nuts for texture and decoration
For the original recipe, check out Dharmagirl at Bliss Delicous Life. She's responsible for this week's simple yet sophisticated pick.
I wanted to make mine slightly less sophisticated. Sometimes you don't want the super-fancy look, just like with clothing. Even though you might be able to pull off a little black dress and stilettos, you wouldn't want to make it a part of your daily wardrobe.... or maybe you do... but for me, not so much. I'll save that for special occasions, just like this tart. I dressed it down because I wasn't going anywhere fancy - just to our lunchroom at work - where it was much appreciated in its cookie/bar form.
