Italian Night - Chocolate-Hazelnut Tart
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups peeled, chopped, and toasted hazelnuts
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips (about 1 cup)
1 cup corn syrup
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 store bought frozen pie crust, defrosted
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
In a large bowl, mix together the sugar and the flour. Add the eggs, hazelnuts, chocolate chips, corn syrup, butter, vanilla, and salt. Stir well. Pour the mixture into the pie crust. Bake for 1 hour.
Cool the tart for at least 30 minutes before serving.
The only downside to this recipe is IT BAKES FOR A FREAKIN HOUR and has to cool FOR ANOTHER FREAKIN 30 MINUTES ha. But well worth the wait in my opinion. The Hazelnuts can be a bit expensive, but I'm sure if we had gone to a specialty store they would have had what we needed at a better price. You do need a specialty tart pan for this recipe. Also when buying the pie crusts make sure you get the ones that come two to a box and are rolled instead of ones that come already in pie tins, they would fit the tart pan better.
