Tiramisu Tart

I made this Tiramisu Tart for a gathering and it was well received by many.

Initially I wanted to garnish it with chocolate curls but my block of chocolate was too hard and I did not have time as I was already late for the gathering.


So today, I did another round for my family.


Learning: Though the steps seem to be daunting but it is relatively easy to put together.  Just need to plan the timing.

The crust is easy to handle too and it is not oily.

For the chocolate layer, use good quality chocolate so that the chocolate taste will shine.

For the cheese layer, I would halved the quantity as I can yield enough for 2 tarts.

Also for the garnish, I just waited for the chocolate to be a little softer (with our climate) so that I can just grate it, if not, it will end up like the first picture.


What you need:
Crust 

112g butter
½ tsp vanilla
1 tbsp coffee liqueur


210g plain flour
½ tsp salt
30g icing sugar
30g cocoa powder

Method:

9” pie tray with removable base.

Melt the butter, add in vanilla and coffee liquer. Mix well.

In a bowl, combine plain flour, salt, icing sugar and cocoa powder.  Whisk to combine.

Pour the butter mixture to the flour mixture and mix to combine.

Pour in the dough and press into the tray covering the sides.

Prick with fork and bake the tart 190°C for 9 mins.  Set aside to cool.


What you need:
Chocolate layer

175g heavy cream
18g corn syrup

112g chocolate
15g butter
1 tbsp coffee liquer

Method:

Bring the heavy cream and corn syrup just to a boil.  DO NOT BOIL.

Pour over the chocolate, butter and coffee liquer and mix until well blended.

Pour into the pie crust.  Freeze until hard.


What you need:
Cheese layer
(half this recipe to make 1 tart)

225 cream cheese
¼ cup whipping cream
30g unsalted butter, softened
4 tbsp icing sugar (adjust sugar level to your liking)
1 tbsp coffee liqueur
1 tbsp coffee

¾ cup whipping cream

Method:

Whisk cream cheese, icing sugar, whipping cream, coffee liqueur and coffee until fully incorporated.  

Whisk whipping cream until stiff peak.

Fold the whipped cream to the cheese mixture together.

Pour the cream mixture onto the frozen chocolate layer.  Spread evenly and chilled until set.

Garnish with shaved chocolate.

Thaw a little before cutting with a sharp knife.

Enjoy!
