Tuesdays with Dorie: Tarte Noire

tarte noire

A Tarte Norie is pure and simple, and all about the chocolate, so break out the good stuff! I had a déjà vu moment while making this, and then I realized that it’s the very same thing as the Chocolate-Crunched Caramel Tart we made awhile back, minus the caramel and nuts.  Dark ganache inside a crisp, sweet pastry shell…I was perfectly happy to experience that again!

For the recipe, see Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan, or read bliss: towards a delicious life.  Don’t forget to check out the TWD Blogroll!

  1. Sounds like a good deja vu! I remember that one too… hm… maybe time for a rewind! These look phenomenally smooth, dark and sinful. Just like they should – so glad you liked them and that they brought back good memories of TWD-past!

  2. I didn’t realize that–but, of course. You are right. I think I liked this better. The chocolate needs nothing added.

    Did you use a springform pan? Or are those little individual tarts?

    • They are individual tart rings…I bought them at a restaruant supply shop.

  3. This is so simple and beautiful! And delicious I’m sure 🙂

  4. Interesting! Is it really strong?

    • Depends on what percentage your chocolate is, I guess. I used a 72%.

  5. I love your mini versions of this tart! Who needs caramel and nuts when you can have dark chocolate ganache in a buttery crust? 🙂

  6. Beautiful! Yep I love those little rings. I have a collection… any tips on ease of use?
    So simple and elegant. Love it!

    • Love these rings– I roll my dough out as one big piece and then use a round cutter a bit larger than the tart ring to cut out circles. Use a little flour on the counter when you fit the dough circles into the ring to avoid sticking, and a sharp pairing knife for trimming the top edge. Then I put them on a parchment lined baking sheet and into the freezer till stiff.

  7. Your tarts look beautiful!

  8. These look so pretty! I loved how simple and rich these were!

  9. This tart was such a wonderful selection! Yours turned out beautifully!

  10. I loved this recipe! Your tarts look perfect. 🙂

  11. I must have missed the Chocolate-Crunched Caramel Tart. Sounds good. Which one did you like better? Anyway, your mini tarts look great!

  12. I didn’t get to make the caramel chocolate crunch tart, so i suppose this was a good alternative? something a little bit more SINISTER. haha. Yours looks really pretty by the way.

  13. Your little tartelettes look perfect!

  14. I thought all this sounded familiar, now I know why. We gussied it up with some whipped cream as guys here are all about the whipped cream on top of things. Yours look pretty great just the way they are!

  15. I love dark chocolate! With a bit of whipped cream and some fresh berries it would be a lovely summer dessert!

  16. THAT’s why the taste was familiar. And it was a good familiar. An excellent familiar. Thanks for reminding me.

    Yours are lovely.

  17. They look gorgeous Steph.

  18. Your tarts look absolutely perfect! I love the simple sophistication captured in that photo. And wow, you are SO RIGHT about it being the same as the caramel crunch tart, just without the caramel and nuts. The funny thing is that I was dying to put caramel on mine!

  19. These look heavenly!

  20. Those tarts look amazing. Awesome photos!

  21. Oh, you’re right, it is the same as the other tart… I kinda wish I’d have added some caramel to this one too, LOL.

    Yours looks perfectly delish!

  22. I love that you used individual tart rings. Way cool. Btw your bbq sauce looks great!

  23. Really classy chocolate tarts; just beautiful! I’m not doing too well in the heat – thank goodness Dorie’s next recipe has the oven at only 325 degrees!

  24. OML this looks AMAZING! 🙂

  25. Those look perfect! I can’t wait to get back to baking again, not having my own oven for so long has been driving me crazy!

  26. Delicious. I just bought some 70% chocolate, just in case something came up. This could be it. This very well could be it! Pastry + chocolate. Two of my favourite things.
