  • This is a tart filled with coconut flavoured mascarpone cheese. Shortbread base is blind baked and filled with cold filling. Mascarpone cream is very fluffy and reminds creamy icecream especially that it could be served frozen. The coconut flavour is multiplied by coconut milk, shredded coconut and coconut extract. Between pastry and mascarpone cream is a thin layer of chocolate ganache with blackberries. Sweet and nutty coconut taste harmonizes perfectly with bitter chocolate and bitter – sweet blackberry. Enjoy!

     

    1 tart ø 10 inch

     

    Ingredients for the base:

    • ½  cup softened butter
    • 5 tablespoons icing sugar
    • 1 egg
    • 1 ½ cups + 1 tablespoon flour

    Filling:

    • 300 g condensed milk (sweetened)
    • 250 g mascarpone cheese
    • ½ cup coconut milk (thick part only)
    • ¾ cup whipping cream
    • 1 teaspoon coconut extract
    • ¾ cup shredded coconut

    Ganache:

    • 100 g dark chocolate
    • 100 ml whipping cream
    • 150 g blackberries

     

    Shortbread base: in the bowl of a stand mixer place the softened butter and sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Stir in egg, mix together. Gradually add flour still mixing on medium speed until the dough forms a ball (the sides of the bowl should be almost clean). The amount of flour you need could vary because of flour type. If the dough is still very soft and does not shape a ball add more flour, one tablespoon at the time. When is ready, remove it from the bowl, wrap in a cling film and let cool in the fridge for at least 1-2 hours.

    Preheat the oven to 350°F.

    Place the cooled pastry on a lightly floured surface and roll out into 1/5 inch thick circle pan size. Fill pan with prepared pastry and press to place properly. Place the parchment paper over the base and scatter ceramic balls, raw bean or peas. Bake the base for 15 minutes then remove the paper and weight and bake for further 12 minutes until golden beige. Cool after baking.

    Make ganache: heat the cream until almost boiling. Remove from the stove and add the chocolate broken into pieces. Let it stand for 3 minutes then mix until combined. Cool slightly. Pour the ganache over the cooled pastry base. Arrange blackberries on the ganache putting them only around the circumference. Place the tart to the freezer for 10 minutes.

    Make filling: in a bowl of electric mixer beat mascarpone cheese, condensed milk and coconut milk until fluffy (about 3 minutes). In a separated bowl beat whipping cream with coconut extract until stiff peaks. Gradually stir whipped cream in mascarpone mixture still beating. Fold in shredded coconut and mix with rubber spatula. Place the mascarpone cream over the chocolate ganache and form a knoll. Place to the freezer for at least 4 hours or overnight. Remove from the freezer 15-20 before serving. Sprinkle with roasted shredded coconut.
