Chocolate Tart with Cookie Crust

 Cookie Crust
Unbelievable!  I forgot to take a picture of the finished tart.  I'll just have to make it again :-)

Chocolate Tart with Cookie Crust

16 chocolate chip cookies (cheap generic ones are fine)
3 T butter, melted

1 c heavy cream
8 oz (1-1/3 c) semi-sweet chocolate
1/4 c milk
1 T butter
1 large egg

Preheat the oven to 350. Make the crust by grinding the cookies into fine crumbs. Add the butter while the processor is running. Press into the bottom and up the sides of a 9 inch pie or tart pan. Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes until darkened. Let cool totally while you make the filling.

Lower the oven to 300. Heat the cream in a saucepan until just beginning to boil. Pour over chocolate in a large glass measuring cup. Let stand and stir to melt chocolate. Stir in milk and butter. Whisk in egg and pour the filling into the cooled crust.

Bake about 22 minutes until edges are set but middle is still slightly soft. Cool on a wire rack. Can be served warm or at room temperature.
