A quick chocolaty dessert. I can’t tell you how easy this was to make. Even faster if you buy the pie dough at your grocer. I haven’t tasted it yet but will keep you posted.
4 1/2 oz of semisweet dark chocolate, broken into pieces
1 cup whole milk ricotta cheese
1/3 cup confectioners sugar
2 tbsp dark rum
finely grated rind of half an orange
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
2- crusts for 9 inch pie. One for the bottom of the tart and the other for the lattice top. You can either make your favorite pie crust or buy at your grocer already made.
Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot water. Pour melted chocolate together with the ricotta, confectioners sugar, grated orange rind, rum, vanilla and walnuts, mixing evenly. Roll out dough to fit into a 9″ tart pan with removable bottom. Spoon the ricotta mixture evenly into the pastry. Roll the remaining dough and cut into strips to form a lattice top. Place on a baking sheet in a preheated 350F oven for about 35 minutes, until firm and golden. Sprinkle with a bit of confectioners sugar.
