Chocolate Ganache Tartlets

• Prep Time:10 minutes

• Cook Time:10 minutes

• Serves:12

Ingredients

• 2 - 9″ refrigerated pie crust dough discs

• 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

• 1 1/2 cups heavy cream

Preparation

• Preheat oven to 425°F.

• Unroll prepared pie crust and lay on to a cutting board.

• Using a 3-inch diameter cookie cutter, cut circles from the pie crust. Each pie crust should yield 10 circles. Combine dough scraps, roll flat, and cut the remaining 4 circles.

• Spray mini cupcake pan with nonstick cooking spray. Press each dough circle into the bottom and sides of the cupcake molds.

• Bake for 9 minutes, until edges become golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool for 10 minutes.

• Combine chocolate chips and heavy cream in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 1 1/2 minutes, stirring every thirty seconds. When completely melted and smooth, transfer mixture to a measuring cup.

• Fill each shell with chocolate ganache and allow to rest at room temperature at least one hour.

• Remove from the pan and serve.
