TWD - Tarte Noire


Tarte Noire, a delicious dessert. Ganache is pretty much a no-fail filling. Warm cream is poured over good chocolate (I used Lindt 70%). Butter is added. The whole thing comes together with little stirring. Finally, it is poured into the waiting crust. Chocolate filling cried out for chocolate crust, so that's what I made. A simple dessert. Slices taken and it's gone.

Thanks to Dharmagirl who chose this recipe. Her blog Bliss:towards a delicious life has the recipe including both the sweet and chocolate crusts.
