Serving Size: 12
Cuisine: American
Main Ingredient: Chocolate
Categories: Brunch, Desserts, Tea time

-= Ingredients =-
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 tablespoon finely ground hazelnuts
6 tablespoon sugar
6 tablespoon unsalted butter ; coarsely chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
12 ounces bittersweet chocolate ; chopped
1 1/4 cups heavy cream ; plus extra for whipping, optional
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pint Raspberries ; for garnish, optional

-= Instructions =-
1.   Preheat oven to 350. Combine salt, nuts, sugar and flour.  Cut in butter with knives or your fingers until you achieve a sandy texture (alternately, do this in a food processor).

2.   Press into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch removable-bottom tart pan.  Bake 20 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove and allow to cool completely.
 
3.   Put chocolate in a bowl large enough to accomodate the rest of the ingredients. Bring cream to a boil, then pour over chocolate. Stir until completely combined, then add vanilla.
 
4.   Pour mixture into the tart shell.  Allow to set at room temperature for about 2 hours.  Serve garnished with whipped cream and/or raspberries.
