So I got home and I laid down to relax… and then I started thinking about Mayan Chocolate…
So I rushed over the to the grocery store and bought a few ingredients for a Mayan Chocolate Tart with a Cherry Reduction…
1 1/3 cup of all purpose flour
1/4 cup of cocoa powder
1/4 tsp of baking powder
1/8 tsp of salt
1/2 cup of confectioners sugar
1/4 cup of raw sugar
3 oz of cold cream cheese
1 stick of cubed frozen butter
2 tablespoons of heavy cream
1 tablespoon of cider vinegar
Combine dry ingredients, then cream cheese, then butter, then heavy cream & cider vinegar. Freeze for an hour
2/3 cup of heavy cream
1/3 cup of condensed milk
Simmer in a sauce pan.
8oz of Mayan dark chocolate
Pour hot cream mixture over chocolate and whisk until blended.
add 2 eggs
1 tsp of vanilla extract
3 tablespoons of Chile powder
Set aside bowl and cover with plastic wrap.
In a small sauce pan
1 1/2 cups of pitted cherries
1/4 of raw sugar,
1 tablespoon of honey.
Bring to a boil, constantly stirring.
Then lower temperature and reduce.
Roll out crust and layer chocolate/cherries/chocolate.
Save a few cherries for a garnish.
Bake at 375 for about 45 minutes, or until you can stick a knife in the middle and it comes out clean.
Happy baking and Have a great week!
