Time for a trip to Europe. Denmark in particular. These tarts are great as appetizers or as an in-between meal snack. You can also use them as individual desserts to compliment most any meal. Hazelnuts, honey, almonds, and dark chocolate combine to give a rich, sweet, nutty experience that will have them begging for more. Allow plenty of time to make them though, as they will take longer than an hour and a half.

Ingredients

  • 300 grams wheat flour
  • 150 grams butter (cold, cut in small pieces)
  • 75 grams hazelnut (powder)
  • 1 egg
  • 100 grams sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla sugar
  • 5 tablespoons honey
  • 100 grams butter
  • 125 grams sugar
  • 200 grams flaked almonds
  • 200 grams dark chocolate

Directions

  1. In a bowl, mix the ingredients for the dough with your fingertips.
  2. Place the 2/3 of the dough in a pie mold or mini molds, and flatten with the palm of your hand for a large pie, and with fingers for mini pies.
  3. This is not a dough to spread with a rolling pin, it will break up.
  4. Cool for 1 hour.
  5. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  6. In a saucepan heat the honey, add the butter and sugar, and then the sliced ​​almonds.
  7. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring.
  8. Pour over the dough.
  9. Bake 20 minutes for a large pie, and 15 minutes for the mini pies. Watch carefully so the pie doesn't brown too much (it would be a little too caramelized then).
  10. Cool.
  11. Melt the chocolate, brush the top of the pie with chocolate, and let harden for an hour.
  12. This is a mini dessert tart, very similar to a Florentin, and very pleasant to serve with coffee.

I know these are supposed to be a dessert, but I can't help but eat them for breakfast with my coffee. They are absolutely divine and so simple to make.
