Chocolate Raspberry Tart

Berry season is in full swing and I can’t seem to get raspberries off of my mind. So plump, tart and flavorful, raspberries add wonderful texture, and acidy to all kinds of fresh foods. One of my favorite ways to eat raspberries is by tossing a handful on my lunchtime salad.

The color alone is a mood lifter but if that’s not enough, raspberries are packed with vitamin C, and have both cancer, and age fighting properties, including a large amount of fiber. These babies are good for you!

Recently, I was invited to be the private chef for a small dinner group. It was a birthday party planned between long-time friends, what a fun night! I wanted to treat the host with a small thank you gift, so I made this chocolate tart and topped it with red ripe raspberries and today, I’m sharing that recipe with you.

A common misconception, is that making French tarts is difficult. The truth is, tarts, whether sweet, or savory, are quite humble and approachable recipes especially if you break it down into steps and take it one at a time.

Chocolate Tart Crust

Step 1 The Crust

Grind chocolate sandwich cookies, along with 1/4 cup of walnuts in a small food processor until they are fine crumbs. Add melted butter, mix and then press the mixture evenly into the bottom of a shallow pie plate or a tart pan. Chill the crust in the freezer for 15 minutes. I used and 8-inch tart pan, a 9-inch tart pan will work well too.
