makes 1 dozen {4-inch} tartlets

Chocolate Pâte Sablée
1 cup plus 2 Tbsp heavy cream
6-oz quality bittersweet chocolate
Fresh raspberries
Powdered sugar

Prepare the Chocolate Pâte Sablée as directed. Divide the dough into 6 portions. Working with one piece at a time, roll the pastry to a 1/4-inch thickness into a 5-inch circle. Fit the pastry into a lightly greased 4-inch tartlet pan, pressing into the fluted edges. Remove any excess dough using a pastry pin. Pierce the crust bottom & sides all over with a fork. Repeat with 5 of the remaining portions of dough. Freeze 20 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Place a piece of parchment paper into the crusts. Top with pie weights or dried beans. Bake on the center oven rack 8 minutes. Remove the pie weights & bake an additional 4 minutes or until the crust is set in the center. Remove from oven. Cool completely. Remove the pastry shell from the pans & place on a half sheet pan.

Microwave the cream & the chocolate in a glass bowl on High power 1 minute, stirring every 15 seconds. Whisk the mixture until completely smooth. Let stand at room temperature 25 minutes. Gently stir the mixture using a rubber spatula & pour it into the baked pastry shells. Chill 4 hours to 24 hours.
