Espresso Tarts

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Prepare Espresso Dough. If necessary, cover and chill for 30 to 60 minutes or until dough is easy to handle.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Shape dough into 36 (about 1 1/4-inch) balls. Lightly press balls onto the bottoms and up the sides of 36 ungreased 1 3/4-inch muffin cups.
  3. For filling, in a small saucepan cook and stir chocolate and butter over low heat until melted. Remove from heat. Stir in egg, brown sugar, liqueur, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cardamom. Spoon 1 slightly rounded teaspoon of the filling into each dough-lined muffin cup.
  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until crust is just firm and filling is puffed and set. Cool in muffin cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Carefully remove tarts from muffin cups; cool completely on rack. Spoon Chocolate Ganache onto tops of tarts. If desired, garnish with coffee beans.

From the Test Kitchen

Blogger Variation by Dorothy Kern of Crazy For Crust

For Dorothy's version, use the Tart Dough recipe and the Peppermint Tart Filling recipe. Omit the espresso powder from the ganache and sprinkle tarts with crushed candy canes for garnish.
