Here is my official Modern Baker recipe post for the sweet tarts! This bittersweet chocolate tart is phenomenal. It's dense and rich and the crust is sweet and crunchy like a perfect cookie. This tart is so delicious, however the richness requires a large gathering. I would be amazed at the person who could eat more than one piece in a day.
The tart begins with a press-in-cookie dough crust. It's made much like cookie dough by mixing butter, sugar, vanilla, and an egg yolk in a mixer.
After stirring in the flour I pressed the dough into my tart pan. Honestly, this was quite a process. I should have listened to Phyl and chilled the dough for a bit. The more I pressed the warmer the dough got and my fingers would slide right though the dough making holes in it.
I took the slow and steady approach and after about 8 minutes I had the tart dough nicely covering my pan. Into the oven it went.
