ALMOND TARTS WITH WHITE CHOCOLATE..

FOR THE TART BASE
100 g plain flour
75 g grounded almonds
100 g powdered sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
90 g butter
2 egg yolks
1/4 tsp. almond extract

FOR THE CREAM
250 g white chocolate
180 ml heavy cream

FOR THE DECORATION
300 g raspberries
fresh peppermint 

1. Make the base: mix almonds, flour, sugar and salt, add butter till it makes crumbs. Add egg yolks and almond extract. Make into smooth dough. Wrap into film and place into the fridge for 30 min.

2. Roll out the dough 3 mm thick, cut 10 cm circles and place into small tart tins. Place the dough a bit over the sides of the tins. Prick the bottom with a fork. Place the tins into the fridge for 30 min.

3. Heat the oven to 200 degrees C. Line tart shells with foil or parchment paper and fill with peas, beans or rise. Bake for 10 min, then remove the weight and bake for other 5 min till golden brown.

4. Make the cream: place the chocolate into a metal bowl. Heat up the cream, then pour it over the chocolate. Let the chocolate melt. Mix the cream.

5. Pour the cream into the tarts. Decorate with raspberries and mint.


P.S. Made these for myself and my boyfriend. They were perfect. Just make sure that your chocolate is supreme.

Enjoy, K.
