This is a dark chocolate and orange mascarpone tart.
- Serves: 1 person
- 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
- ½cup butter
- 3tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1tablespoon confectioners' sugar
- 9ounces dark chocolate chips
- 2(8 ounce) packages mascarpone cheese (such as Tre Stelle®)

Step 1Combine flour, butter, cocoa, and confectioners' sugar in a food processor. Blend until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Add egg and blend briefly to combine into the dough.
Step 2Roll out crust dough on a lightly floured work surface using a lightly floured rolling pin. Place in a 8-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Prick pastry dough liberally with a fork. Chill for 1 hour.
Step 3While crust dough chills, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Step 4Bake crust in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and set on a wire rack to cool. Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
Step 5Melt dark chocolate chips in a double boiler, about 5 minutes; remove from heat.
Step 6Beat mascarpone cheese, eggs, and sugar together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth. Pour in melted chocolate and orange liqueur; stir to combine. Pour filling into the prepared crust.
Step 7Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 40 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool before serving.
