Chocolate Caramel Walnut Tart
Why This Recipe Works
A modified pâte sucrée recipe was the launch pad for our chocolate caramel walnut tart recipe. Adding ground walnuts to boost the flavor meant we had to reduce the amount of butter (to account for the lesser quantity of flour and the extra fat from the ground walnuts). Form-fitting the dough into the tart pan by hand helped produce a crisp crust with sharp, sturdy edges. A soft, gooey caramel-walnut filling, with an egg-lightened layer of chocolate ganache baked (rather than chilled) on top, made for a rich chocolate walnut tart recipe.
