Espresso Tiramisu Tart - Tuesdays with Dorie

One of this month's projects for Tuesdays with Dorie was tiramisu presented in a tart crust. I've made classic tiramisu and actually served it in tart form before so I decided to follow the suggestions in the recipe to switch it up a little with a chocolate crust and an espresso-flavoured mascarpone filling.
This was a very nice twist on traditional tiramisu, which in this recipe, was quite light and mousse-like. I made the ladyfinger cookies from the book and they melded with the filling more than store-bought savoiardi might have but they still created a distinct layer of concentrated espresso flavour

We really enjoyed this dessert. Each bite was an explosion of crisp cookie crust, cool creamy filling, and coffee and chocolate flavours, one of my favourite combinations.

The recipes for Espresso-Espresso Tiramisu Tart, Chocolate Tart Dough and Ladyfingers are from the book Baking Chez Moi, by Dorie Greenspan. Visit TWD to see what everyone else made.

Your tart looks perfect. I had a lot of problems with the chocolate tart dough. It was way too dry, the filling tasted nice but I´m sticking with the classic from now on.
