Raspberry Chocolate Tart Recipe

When our son was young, he would gauge his birthday based on when the raspberries were ripe. We'd use the fresh-picked berries to decorate this tart for his special day. —Annie Dougherty, Fairbanks, Alaska
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling Bake: 25 min. + chilling YIELD:12 servings


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup walnut pieces
  • 3 tablespoons sugar

  • 1/3 cup seedless raspberry jam
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries


  • 1. In a food processor, combine the flour, walnuts, sugar and salt; cover and process until walnuts are chopped. Add butter; pulse just until crumbly. Add egg yolks; process until small moist crumbs form. Shape into a ball, then flatten into a disk. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  • 4. Meanwhile, in a heavy saucepan, heat cream over medium heat until bubbles form around sides of pan. Remove from the heat; stir in chocolate chips until melted. Cool to room temperature, about 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  • 5. Pour over crust. Refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours. Remove sides of pan. Arrange raspberries over the top. Yield: 12 servings.
