Chocolate Ganache Tart
Updated: Sep 13, 2019
I'm tart obsessed. In my opinion they are one of the most impressive and surprisingly easiest desserts to make! Plus it's hella versatile. Start with a basic tart shell and fill it with lemon curd, white chocolate, custard and fruit, matcha, ganache...the list goes on.
This time I was feelin' chocolate. Rich, THICK, dark chocolate. So I filled this tart shell up with chocolate ganache *drools*.
And...chocolate goes with... Well, lot's of stuff. This time it was strawberries, meringues, and white chocolate. Ready to make your own Chocolate Ganache Tart? Here you go:
Recipe adapted from Rosie Daykin's Butter Baked Goods
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup icing sugar
2 egg yolks
1/2 egg (whisked and split in half)
1 1/4 cups of all purpose-flour
1/4 teaspoon salt Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks and eggs, one at a time. With the mixer running at low speed, add flour, and salt until well combined.
Wrap dough and refrigerate for at least an hour. Once dough has chilled, roll out 1/4 inch thick and transfer to a 9 inch tart shell, pressing up sides and cutting off excess with a knife or by using a rolling pin.
Bake for 12 minutes until tart is golden brown.
