Chocolate Truffle Tart
« on: October 23, 2011, 01:56:43 PM »
Found this recipe in a mag I recently purchased although it was conceived in 2007. It's done but only have 2 more hours for cooling. Not sure if I can wait that long. LOL

The chocolate mixture left in the bowl tastes awesome!

Will let you know how it tastes later after I eat it all. LOL I'll take a pic or 2. :)

O...M...G...!!!!!! This is probably the best chocolate dessert I've ever had! Very rich and decedent! You only need a small slice.

Yeah, my sprinkling skills need some work. I put too much on one side and had to smooth it with my fingers.  :hah:

This recipe is no longer available because epicurious.com and bonappetit.com have gone to a paid subscription.  :censored:

However, I searched and searched and found this one which is the same:

http://www.gourmet.com.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com/recipes/2000s/2007/02/chocolatetruffletart.html


For crust:

    28 chocolate wafers such as Nabisco Famous, finely ground in a food processor (1 1/2 cups)
    3/4 stick (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted and cooled completely

For filling:

    1/2 lb fine-quality bittersweet chocolate (no more than 60% cacao if marked), coarsely chopped
    3/4 stick stick (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
    2 large eggs, lightly beaten
    1/3 cup heavy cream
    1/4 cup granulated sugar
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

    Special equipment: an 8-inch (20-cm) round springform pan
    Garnish: unsweetened cocoa powder for sprinkling

Make crust:

    Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 350°F. Wrap a sheet of foil over bottom of springform pan (in case of leaks). Lightly butter side of pan.
    Stir together ground wafers and butter in a bowl until combined, then pat mixture evenly onto bottom of pan and 1 1/2 inches up side. Bake until crust is slightly puffed, about 10 minutes, then cool completely in pan on a rack, about 15 minutes. Leave oven on.

Make filling while crust cools:

    Melt chocolate and butter in a 2-quart heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring until smooth, then remove from heat and cool 5 minutes.
    Whisk together eggs, cream, sugar, salt, and vanilla in a bowl. Whisk chocolate mixture into egg mixture until combined well.

Assemble and bake tart:

    Pour filling into cooled crust and rap pan once on counter to eliminate any air bubbles. Bake until filling 1 inch from edge is set and slightly puffed but center trembles slightly when pan is gently shaken, 20 to 25 minutes. (Center will continue to set as it cools.)
    Cool tart completely in pan on a rack, about 2 hours. Chill, uncovered, until center is firm, about 4 hours. Remove side of pan and sprinkle with cocoa to serve.

Cooks’ notes:

    Tart can be chilled up to 3 days. Cover loosely after tart is completely chilled (covering before may cause condensation).
    Crust, without filling, can be made 1 day ahead and kept, covered, at room temperature.
