Almond and White Chocolate Cream Tart

Almond and White Chocolate Cream Tart

Method

For the crust

  • Preheat oven to 160* C (320* F) Fan.
  • Add all of the ingredients for the crust (apart from the egg, needed for brushing) in a food processor. Beat for 2 minutes on low speed, until you create a dough.
  • Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for ½ an hour.
  • When ready, transfer to a 25 cm spring form pan and press onto bottom and up the sides with your hands.
  • You can also roll out the dough but it is very easy to do it with your hands.
  • Make sure that the thickness of the crust is even. Use a fork to pierce some holes in the dough so that it doesn't puff up while baking.
  • Cover dough with plastic wrap in a crisscross manner and add baking weights or beans and bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Remove the crust from the oven and remove the weights and plastic wrap. Continue baking for another 10-15 minutes, until it turns slightly golden.
  • Two minutes before the crust is ready, dilute the egg with some water and lightly beat. Brush the egg wash over the crust.
  • When ready, remove from oven and allow to cool.

For the cream

  • Beat the butter and icing sugar in a mixer on medium speed, using the paddle attachment until light and fluffy.
  • Lower mixers speed, add the melted chocolate and bet until completely incorporated.
  • Transfer cream to a pastry bag.
  • When the crust has cooled, fill with cream and dust with icing sugar.
