It took me about a year to crack the perfect recipe for a sweet tart crust. I wanted the dough to keep its shape during baking, and also wanted it to be comfortable to work with, without having to chill it.

I am very proud to share this recipe with you, that ever since discovered, is used by me whenever I am making sweet tarts. My best baking tip for baking a tart crust (pies as well) is that it should be well frozen prior baking. The dough will set during the first minutes in the oven, before getting a chance to lose its shape. The weights help prevent the dough from puffing.

This time I am sharing a classic, delicious recipe for a baked chocolate tart, using my sweet tart crust which you can implement not just for tarts, but also for cookies.
