Raspberry Truffle Tart

 

Chocolate and raspberries are a classic flavour combination and featured in this Raspberry Truffle Tart.  The tart features a sugar cookie crust filled with a creamy chocolate filling that resembles the inside of a chocolate truffle.  Throughout the filling are fresh raspberries, which give the tart a bright and refreshing note and balance its richness.  This tart is easy to make, yet elegant and impressive.

 

 

 

 

 

Tips for Making a Perfect Tart

 

  1. Cream the butter and sugar sufficiently:  Creaming the butter and sugar until lighter in colour and fluffy maximizes the amount of trapped air within the butterfat.  This increases the leavening of the pâte sucrée during baking, resulting in a lighter texture.
  2. Do not over-mix the dough: If the dough is over-mixed after the flour has been added too much gluten may develop.  This could cause the dough to shrink as it bakes or give the baked dough a tough texture.
  3. Rest the dough: Allowing the dough to rest in the refrigerator before rolling out allows any developed gluten to relax, making the dough less elastic and easier to roll out.  It also firms the butter in the dough, which prevents spreading during baking.
  4. Allow the filling to set before serving: It is important to allow the truffle filling to set fully before serving the tart so that the tart is easy to cut and the filling does not flow out.  Chilling the tart overnight is sufficient time to set the filling.

 

 

Recipe Q & A

Q:  Why does my tart dough keep sticking to the counter as I roll it out? 

 A:  It is likely that the surface you are using to roll out the dough as well as your dough is not covered in enough flour, causing the dough to stick.  Also, as you are rolling out the dough make sure you are moving it around frequently.  This will also prevent it from sticking to the surface.

Q:  Why is my tart crust tough? 

A:  Your tart crust may be tough if there was a lot of gluten development while making the dough.  To prevent this, do not over-mix the dough after the flour is added.

Q:  Why did my tart crust shrink in the oven? 

A:  Most likely on account of gluten development while making the dough.  To prevent this, do not over-mix the dough once the flour has been added. 

Q:  Why are there lumps in my truffle filling? 

A:  Most likely the chocolate chips did not melt fully when making the filling.  To ensure they melt fully, bring the heavy cream to a full boil and let the chocolate chips melt in the cream before stirring the mixture.

  4. Place the tart pan on a baking sheet.  Dock the dough at the bottom of the tart pan with a fork.  Bake at 375°F for 15-20 minutes or until the tart shell is lightly golden.  Transfer to a wire rack and let cool to room temperature.
  5. Arrange the raspberries to cover the bottom of the tart shell.
