For the dough

  • In a bowl add the flour, the icing sugar, the cocoa powder, salt, and the butter cut into cubes.
  • Rub the mixture with your hands, for 5-6 minutes, until it has the texture of wet sand. Ideally, you should wear gloves to prevent the butter from melting (due to the heat of your hands).
  • Add the egg and knead until there is a thick dough.
  • Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 60 minutes to rest.
  • Preheat the oven to 160ο C (320ο F) set to fan.
  • Put the dough between two pieces of parchment paper and, with a rolling pin, roll it out into a sheet that is a little larger than your pan.
  • Transfer the dough to a heart-shaped springform pan and press it with your hands so to shape it perfectly. Crimp the tart crust, 3-4 cm, to hold the filling well.
  • Spread some plastic wrap, add legumes as pie weights, and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the pie weights and bake for 20 more minutes.
  • Let it cool well.

For the ganache

  • Place a pot over medium heat.
  • Add the heavy cream and let it get hot. As soon as it comes to a boil, turn off the heat and the chocolate finely chopped. Wait 10 seconds for the chocolate to start melting.
  • Add the bitter almond liqueur and stir with a silicone spatula until it melts completely.
  • Set aside, so that the temperature of the ganache drops, and then spread it over the crust.
  • Let it stabilize for 5-6 hours.
  • Decorate with whipped cream, strawberries, chocolates, candies, mint, and serve.
