Chocolate Almond Raspberry Tart

Valentine’s Day is time for chocolate, of course, and what goes with chocolate better than raspberries? (Or, okay, maybe strawberries.) How about nuts? In this Chocolate Almond Raspberry Tart from the  St. Francis Inn, Saint Augustine, Florida, you get all three: A creamy but easy to make chocolate filling lies in a sweet, crisp pastry crust that contains toasted almonds.  Red berries (your choice) top the filling, giving a touch of fresh tartness, not to mention Valentine’s Day color.  Think about making this rich, sweet dessert for the 14th — it’s worth the splurge, especially if you share it with someone special.

Chocolate Almond Raspberry Tart

1 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup finely chopped toasted almonds

1/4 teaspoon salt

24 oz chocolate chips

2 1/2 cup heavy cream
