Chocolate Glazed Chocolate Tart Recipe

Chocolate Glazed Chocolate Tart

Equipment:

  • a 9-inch round fluted tart pan (1 inch deep)

Ingredients

  • For crust:
    • 9 (5- by 2 1/4-inch) chocolate graham crackers (not chocolate-covered), finely ground (1 cup)
    • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
    • 1/4 cup sugar
  • For filling:
    • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
    • 9 ounces bittersweet chocolate (not more than 65% cacao if marked), chopped
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • For glaze:
    • 2 tablespoon heavy cream
    • 1 3/4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
    • 1 teaspoon light corn syrup
    • 1 tablespoon warm water

Preparation

  • Make crust:
    • Preheat oven to 350°F with rack in middle.
    • Stir together all ingredients and press evenly onto bottom and 3/4 inch up side of tart pan. Bake until firm, about 10 minutes. Cool on a rack 15 to 20 minutes
  • Make filling:
    • Bring cream to a boil, then pour over chocolate in a bowl and let stand 5 minutes. Gently stir until smooth. Whisk together eggs, vanilla, and salt in another bowl, then stir into melted chocolate.
    • Pour filling into cooled crust. Bake until filling is set about 3 inches from edge but center is still wobbly, 20 to 25 minutes. (Center will continue to set as tart cools.) Cool completely in pan on rack, about 1 hour.
  • Make glaze:
    • Bring cream to a boil and remove from heat. Stir in chocolate until smooth. Stir in corn syrup, then warm water.
    • Pour glaze onto tart, then tilt and rotate tart so glaze coats top evenly. Let stand until glaze is set, about 1 hour.
