Chocolate Pie Dough

  Re: (...)
I saw this recipe/idea while we were on the road last month and made it up, but stuck it in the freezer when I just ran out of time.

Since I wanted to make the Cacao gelato for today (the 4th) thought little pie dough tarts might make for a fun presentation so thawed it out. Don't know if I posted the recipe somewhere but here it is -

Great idea! I think they'd be delicious filled with an ice cream sundae (especially a turtle--caramel, fudge, and toasted pecans)!

That is really a cool idea, Jean!

For the gelato, did you just use a vanilla gelato recipe and add in the nibs? And, where do you buy cacao nibs? Don't know that I've seen them, but was never really looking for them either...

Maryann, I don't remember where I picked the nibs up. I don't remember making vanilla gelato either, but I'll post the recipe in the a.m. And you can compare.

Denise, we really loved it,too!
