How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Make dough: In a food processor, pulse almonds until finely ground. Add sugar, flour, zest (if desired), and salt; pulse until combined. Add butter, pulsing until coarse crumbs form with no large butter lumps (dough should clump together when squeezed with fingers).
  • Immediately transfer dough to a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom.
  • Using a measuring cup, evenly press dough in bottom and up sides of pan.
  • Bake in center of oven until golden brown and firm to the touch, about 20 minutes.
  • Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • Make ganache:
  • Place chocolate in a large mixing bowl.
  • In a small saucepan, bring cream to a boil.
  • Pour hot cream, through a sieve, over chocolate.
  • Stir until smooth and creamy in texture.
  • Mix in vanilla.
  • Pour chocolate mixture into center of cooled tart shell (if chocolate is lumpy, pass through a sieve).
  • Let stand until set, about 2 hours, or chill for 1 hour.

    I made this in a chocolate graham cracker crust just to see how good it was. It was GOOD and next time will go in the correct crust.
