Prep.Time: 40 min

Baking Time: 45 min

Serves: 8

 

Ingredients

For the Crust:

  • 280g plain flour

  • 100g ground hazelnuts

  • 150g butter, straight from refrigerator

  • 120g sugar

  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder, unsweetened

  • 2 yolks

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 2 Tbsp peaches syrup

  • 50 ml whipping cream

  • 800g peaches in syrup, drained and sliced

For the Glaze:

  • 100g (3.5 oz) dark chocolate, chopped

  • 50 ml (1/5 cup) whipping cream​


 


Method

Make the Crust


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, ground hazelnut and salt. Make a well in the middle, and cut in butter. Using your fingertips rub the butter into the flour mixture, until the mixture looks like coarse breadcrumbs.

2. In a bowl, cream yolks and sugar. Pour over flour-butter mixture, tossing until dough forms a ball. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

3. Lay the dough inside a pie plate. Press the edges into the sides of the pan. Cover top of tart with wax paper. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove foil and bake 10-15 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack.


​Make the Filling


4. I​n a saucepan, place the chocolate-hazelnut spread. Sit over a pan of barely simmering water (a bain-marie) and allow it to melt, stirring occasionally. Stir in whipping cream and 2 tablespoons peaches syrup. Spread the hazelnut-cream over pastry shell and arrange the peaches (drained and sliced) on top.


Make the Chocolate Glaze


5. In a small saucepan over medium high heat, bring cream to a boil. Remove from heat. Add the dark chocolate, and stir until all chocolate is melted and the glaze is glossy. Let cool completely. Using a teaspoon drizzle it over peaches on top.


Enjoy!
