Ingredients

  • 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
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pint fresh raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons raspberry jam, melted
  • Powdered sugar for dusting

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, combine the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Add the cold butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  3. Press the dough into a tart pan, covering the bottom and sides. Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Line the tart crust with parchment paper and fill with pie weights or dried beans.
  5. Bake the crust for 15 minutes. Remove the parchment paper and weights, then bake for an additional 10 minutes until the crust is cooked through. Let it cool.
  6. In a saucepan, heat the heavy cream until just simmering. Remove from heat and add the chopped bittersweet chocolate. Stir until smooth and velvety. Mix in vanilla extract.
  7. Pour the chocolate ganache into the cooled tart crust. Arrange fresh raspberries on top.
  8. Brush the raspberries with melted raspberry jam for a glossy finish.
  9. Refrigerate the tart for at least 2 hours to set.
  10. Dust with powdered sugar just before serving.
