Top-ranked recipe named "Chocolate Lovers' Tart"
This doesn't have any added sugar in the filling, so it is perfect for people who really love dark chocolate. It is worth using good-quality chocolate for this one.
"This turned out great. I used pastry flour instead of all-purpose flour, and as a result the crust mix didn't turn out "sandy"-- I had to add a couple of tablespoons of cold water to firm it up. The unsweetened chocolate filling is really great, and the hazelnut flavor in the crust really comes through.
On the side I served small pools of raspberry coulis and crème anglaise. "
Oven Temp: 350F / 175C / Gas Mark 4
1. Preheat oven. Combine salt, nuts, sugar and flour. Cut in butter with knives or your fingers until you achieve a sandy texture (alternately, do this in a food processor).
2. Press into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch removable-bottom tart pan. Bake 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove and allow to cool completely.
3. Put chocolate in a bowl large enough to accomodate the rest of the ingredients. Bring cream to a boil, then pour over chocolate. Stir until completely combined, then add vanilla.
4. Pour mixture into the tart shell. Allow to set at room temperature for about 2 hours. Serve garnished with whipped cream and/or raspberries.

susanjm 9 years agoI agree ... this is a great photo! The teacup as a backdrop was a great idea. I've added this to my favourites because it sounds amazing.
