White chocolate and raspberry tart!

Recipe for 20cm tart tin

For pastry:
  • 170 grams 00 flour
  • 85 grams cold unsalted butter cubed
  • 40 grams icing sugar
  • 1 whole egg (you might also require an additional egg yolk if the dough requires more moisture)
  • Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch salt
  • White chocolate ganache:
  • 300 grams good quality white chocolate
  • 150 grams fresh double cream
  • 150 grams fresh Raspberries
  • To a food with the kneading paddle on, add the flour, butter and icing sugar and mix on medium speed. Add the egg and allow it to incorporate and then add the vanilla and salt. Knead until the dough comes together.
  • Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius
  • Turn out the dough on a slightly floured surface and gently knead to a disk shape. Place in cling film and refrigerate for 30-45 minutes.
  • When the dough is firm, take it out of the fridge and place on a lightly floured surface. Roll out with a rolling pin and then place it in the tart tin, removing any excess around the edges. Make sure to prick the base and sides with a fork.
  • Place parchment paper on the base and fill with rice or baking beans. Blind bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes.
  • After the blind baking, remove the parchment and baking beans and then bake for another 10 minutes until golden.
  • Take out of the oven and allow to completely cool.
  • To make the ganache, have the cream on low-medium heat in a saucepan.
  • Pour in the white chocolate. Once the white chocolate has melted into the cream and well incorporated, take off the heat and pour it into the tart tin.
  • Half each raspberry and put it into the ganache, so its nearly submerged.
  • Allow to cool at room temp and then refrigerate for around 2 hours prior to serving.
