Freeform Chocolate-Orange tart

Back from France with the usual heavy magazine load, SWEETTABLESCAPES pulled this easy recipe from Elle A Table.

Perfect for a casual get together, it’s prepared in a cinch.


You’ll need:

200 g flour

50 g almond meal

120 g salted butter (cut into small pieces)

100 g granulated sugar

1 egg

For the ganache:

150 g bittersweet chocolate, chopped

15 cl heavy cream

50 butter

zest of 1 orange


Mix flour, almond meal and salted butter in bowl of electric mixer until you have a mixture that resembles cornmeal.  IMG_7996

Add egg until mixture forms a ball. Refrigerate for one hour.IMG_7997IMG_7998

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Cover cookie sheet with parchment paper. Roll out dough onto floured parchment to form rough circle (you can cut edges evenly if you wish)

Poke dough with a fork and bake for 20 minutes.IMG_7999 IMG_8000
