- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg yolk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 8 ounces dark chocolate, finely chopped
- 1 pint fresh raspberries
- 2 tablespoons raspberry jam
- Mint leaves for garnish
- Start by preparing the crust. In a food processor, combine the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Pulse a couple of times to mix.
- Add the cold cubed butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the egg yolk and vanilla extract. Add it to the food processor and pulse until the dough comes together.
- Press the dough into a tart pan, making sure to evenly cover the bottom and sides. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Line the crust with parchment paper and fill it with pie weights or dried beans.
- Bake the crust for 15 minutes, then remove the parchment paper and weights. Bake for an additional 10 minutes until the crust is set. Let it cool completely.
- In a saucepan, heat the heavy cream until it’s just about to boil. Remove from heat and add the chopped dark chocolate. Let it sit for a minute, then stir until smooth and glossy.
- Pour the chocolate ganache into the cooled tart shell and spread it evenly. Refrigerate for 1 hour to set.
- Arrange the fresh raspberries on top of the ganache, pressing them slightly into the chocolate.
- In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the raspberry jam until it’s slightly melted. Gently brush the raspberries with the melted jam.
- Garnish the tart with mint leaves for a burst of color and freshness.
