Cashew and Dark Chocolate Ganache Tart with Berries

Cashew and Dark Chocolate Ganache Tart with Berries

12 Servings

Ingredients:

For Crust:

  • 1 cup cardamom cashews

  • 1¼ cups chocolate cookie crumbs

  • ⅓ cup sugar

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted

For Ganache:

  • 12oz bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, finely chopped

  • 1 cup heavy cream

To Garnish:

  • 2 cups mixed fresh berries, such as raspberries, halved strawberries, blueberries, and pomegranate seeds

  • Cardamom cashews

  • Edible flowers

  • Flaky sea salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350℉.

  2. In a food processor pulse cashews until very finely ground, but not ground into a paste.

  3. In a medium bowl stir together ground cashews, cookie crumbs, sugar, and butter until crumbs are moistened. Press into an 8” tart pan with a removable bottom, pressing evenly on bottom and up the sides. Line with parchment paper and pie weights or dried beans and bake until set, about 15 minutes. Cool completely.

  4. Place chocolate in a medium bowl. In a small saucepan bring cream just to a boil, then pour over chocolate. Let sit 1 minute, then stir in a circular motion until ganache is smooth. Pour into crust and refrigerate until set, at least 1 hour.

  5. Before serving, top tart with berries, cashews, and flowers and sprinkle lightly with salt.
