Ta da! Two Chocolate Amaretti Tortes, one Strawberry Tart, and an impromptu batch of cookies later...I'm still tired. I've easy done 5 or 6 loads of dishes in the last two days. Oy.
From what I could tell, the desserts were well-received by my coworkers. The tart disappeared early this morning, and I've had 2 requests for the recipe already. The cookies and torte were still around well into the afternoon, so I don't know if that means people were just feeling the strawberries today or what.
What I like about both desserts is that they're relatively simple but look impressive. If I had a last minute guest (with a day's notice, at least) I'd definitely whip up either dessert.
I'm excited about the success of each dessert and the new recipes I have in my arsenal. I'm also glad that I learned a new skill or two with these desserts. Oh, and please don't judge the messy countertops. I was sleep deprived and hurried this morning. Empty jam jar? Oh freakin' well.
