Ganache Tart


by: Texas Chef

A rectangular tart with a simple ganache filling is a dramatic break from the usual round tart. You can use a classic ganache of equal parts chocolate and heavy cream, but if you want a denser texture use less cream. To fill a standard 9 1/2-inch tart pan, you'll need 3 cups ganache; for the 8 by 11-inch rectangle shown here, you'll need 4 cups. You can also use whipped ganache for a lighter alternative.

1.  Ladle hot ganache into a prebaked tart shell. Allow it to settle and set slightly.

2.  To give the surface a luxurious sheen, wave a blow torch over the tart - hold it about a foot away from the top of the tart - just long enough to barely melt the surface of the ganache.
