Chocolate Hazelnut Tart Recipe

Chocolate Hazelnut Tart Recipe

This dessert looks like it takes a lot of time to prepare but it is actually very easy! I like to serve it with vanilla or coffee ice cream.—Gilda Lester, Millsboro, Delaware
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + chilling Bake: 25 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
