Another elegant, easy and luxurious tart baked for a potluck for the Husband's office party....it was a definitely a HIT.
Preheat oven to 180 C. Make dough: In a food processor, pulse cashew or almond until finely ground. Add sugar, flour, zest (if desired), and salt; pulse until combined. Add butter, pulsing until coarse crumbs form with no large butter lumps (dough should clump together when squeezed with fingers).
Immediately transfer the coarse dough to a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom. Using a measuring cup, evenly press dough in bottom and up sides of pan
Bake in center of oven until golden brown and firm to the touch, about 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, about 1 hour.
Make ganache: Place chocolate in a large mixing bowl. In a small saucepan, bring cream to a boil. Pour hot cream, through a sieve, over chocolate. Stir until smooth and creamy in texture. Mix in vanilla.
Pour chocolate mixture into center of cooled tart shell (if chocolate is lumpy, pass through a sieve). Let stand until set, about 2 hours, or chill for 1 hour.
I used the wilton stencil to create a pattern, and dusted confectioner's sugar over the stencil just before serving

This tart was one I have been eyeing for a very long while and never could make. Either the tart pan wasnt right or the ingredients werent good enough. Even this time I substituted the tart base with Marie biscuits as opposed to digestive biscuits,heavy cream with milk and butter and so on.. ,but still it made the most amazing tart I have ever had!! Trust me friends this triple layer of crumbly crust, a truffle-like interior, and an almost patent-leather-shiny glaze tart is sinfully delicious !!
I know this post has been a long time in the making (Ankit I can almost see you nodding your head... well, get out those fire-crackers you've been saving up!) but I've FINALLY managed to post what's officially my 100th recipe! Figured I might make it something celebration worthy... so here's my relatively simple and definitely OH-so worth it mini lemon meringue pie recipe... guaranteed to get you some ooohs and aaahs of appreciation!
I love chocolate tarts and I try a lot of variations, chocolate ganache tart, different kinds of chocolate pudding tarts. This is my latest attempt, for the chocolate lovers who like theirs rich, dark and fudgy! :)
