Daring Bakers: Chocolate and Caramel Tart by cakecrumbs Daring Bakers: Chocolate and Caramel Tart by cakecrumbs
I have to admit to being totally afraid of pie. I attempted baking a few when I first started baking and, well, the shells were almost always a disaster. So I ran away from pies.

So when this month's Daring Bakers Challenge was all about pie, I was actually excited. It was time to see how far I'd come now that I have a lot more kitchen hours under my belt.

I ended up taking on three. The first one is the one that Cam and I both wanted to try. It's a pâte sablée filled with a salted caramel layer beneath a dark chocolate mousse. I stenciled some icing sugar over the top to make it a little more interesting.

It was so delicious, and totally restored my faith in my ability to make pies.

The next two will be on the way soon. Meantime, you can get the recipe for this over at the blog: [link]

How do you cut your pies so nicely? Every time I go to cut pie it always comes out in a glob. I try to be careful too.

It depends a little on the filling! But if it's cooled enough to have set, and you use a sharp knife and a little care, it comes out okay.

Even precut slices end up as globs too :'(
