Gluten free chocolate strawberry tart recipe

I was recently approached by Hotel Chocolat, one of my favourite purveyors of all things chocolate, about reviewing one of their recipes. I jumped at the chance!

Hotel Chocolat is a British-owned company founded by Angus Thirlwell and Peter Harris over 15 years ago. With one goal in mind, "to make a better type of chocolate available to UK consumers bored by the mediocrity of that available in supermarkets and on the high street". They started as a catalogue-based business with an award-winning website and in 2004 opened their first uber-stylish store. Since then they have gone from strength to strength and their gorgeous stores can be found up and down the country.

Method

Gluten free chocolate tart pastry

  1. Place all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl, add butter and rub in with the fingertips until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Or use a food processor to save a bit of time!

  2. Make a well in the centre of your dry ingredients and add the egg yolk and water mix.

  3. Combine mixture with a wooden spoon, then knead by hand to form a ball of dough.

  4. Cover with cling film and place in a refrigerator for at least an hour before continuing.

  5. Lightly grease an 11-inch flan tin.

  6. Roll out the pastry so it is about 2mm thick.

  8. Cover the pastry with greaseproof paper and fill with baking beans or chickpeas

  9. Cook in pre-heated oven for 15-20 mins

  10. Leave to cool and remove the greaseproof paper and beans/peas.
