  • Prep time 20 minutes
  • Total time 1 hour

Ingredients

Crust:
  • 1 cup shortbread cookie crumbs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter , melted
Caramel:
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 3 tablespoons whipping cream (35%)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt (such as Maldon)
Ganache:
  • 85 g bittersweet chocolate (about 3 oz), chopped
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream (35%)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Method

Crust: In bowl, stir together cookie crumbs, sugar and butter. Press mixture firmly into bottoms and up sides of 6 shallow 3-inch tart pans with removable bottoms. Place pans on baking sheet; bake in 350°F oven until light golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from oven; let coolin pans to room temperature.

Caramel: Filling In saucepan, stir together corn syrup, sugar and 1 tsp water over medium heat until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high; cook, without stirring, until mixture begins to turn amber, about 2 minutes. Carefully swirl mixture in pan; cook until dark amber. Remove from heat. Standing back and averting face, whisk in whipping cream, butter and salt. Whisk constantly until mixture forms a smooth and creamy caramel. Pour evenly into tart shells (it will firm up as it cools). Refrigerate tarts for 15 minutes.

Ganache: Meanwhile, place chocolate in bowl. In saucepan, bring whipping cream and vanilla to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Pour over chocolate; let stand until chocolate is softened, about 1 minute. Stir until mixture is smooth. Pour chocolate mixture evenly over Caramel Filling, smoothing tops. Refrigerate until chocolate is firm, about 15 minutes.

Makes 6 tarts.
