makes 6 {2 1/4-inch} tartlets

1/4 recipe Chocolate Pâte Sablée
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup cold Chocolate Ganache Filling 
Raspberry Coulis

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 3-inch circle. Fit the pastry into a lightly greased 2 1/4-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 the remaining 5 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.

Beat the cream with an electric mixer on High speed until soft peaks form. In a separate bowl, beat the Chocolate Ganache Filling until whipped in texture & slightly stiff. This should take less than 15 seconds to achieve. Do not overmix. Fold the cream into the chocolate mixture then transfer to a piping bag fit with a large star-shaped tip. Pipe the filling into the chocolate pastry shells. Chill up to 2 hours before serving. Accompany with Raspberry Coulis.
