Yield: Yields one 91/2-inch tart.
Servings: twelve to sixteen.
To remove a tart from the pan, set the pan on a wide can and let the outside ring fall away. If it’s stubborn, grip the ring with your fingers to coax it off. Slide a long, thin metal spatula between the pan base and the curst and ease the tart onto a flat serving plate.

I have made this several times & it’s always delicious. However I made it for a birthday celebration this week and instead of the whipped cream topping I used the topping from FC #152 - the equally delicious chocolate espresso cream pie. This may have been the best dessert I have ever made! There wasn’t a sliver left!
I made this for Christmas Day, but we did not eat it until the next day. When my hubby was almost through with his first slice, he said, "Know how you could make this better?" I shook my head and he said, "Double the filling." Nuff said. It was easy, fast and most importantly, tasty. The Mascarpone cheese was a nice break from the chocolate. Will make it again, with double the filling!
This recipe is excellent, but not quite as written. The topping, as written, comes out rocky rather than smooth and pillowy. I found that it required either more cream, or less mascarpone than indicated and a bit more sugar. Mix the sugar together with the other ingredients, whip the cream separately, and fold together. It comes out beautifully.
This was amazingly easy and very rich. I used 1/2 bittersweet chocolate and 1/2 milk chocolate as I like a bit of a sweeter chocolate. Also on the whipped topping I added a 1/2 Tbs more sugar because I need more cavities. It came out amazing and so easy! I used a bought graham cracker crust, it could have been a regular pie crust both would be fine. My whipped topping came out great not sure why others had a problem. Going to make this again soon because I accidentally bought too much mascarpone ! It was very very rich and quite good. Reminded me of a french silk pie.
