October 5, 2014 §
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.
200 g flour
50 g almond meal
120 g salted butter (cut into small pieces)
100 g granulated sugar
For the ganache:
150 g bittersweet chocolate, chopped
15 cl heavy cream
zest of 1 orange
Mix flour, almond meal and salted butter in bowl of electric mixer until you have a mixture that resembles cornmeal.
Add egg until mixture forms a ball. Refrigerate for one hour.
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.
To make the ganache: Bring heavy cream to a boil and pour over chocolate; add butter and mix until smooth.
Sprinkle orange zest over baked dough and spread chocolate ganache over entire tart. Refrigerate for about 2 hours.
