Ingredients

Crust

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
3 tablespoons sugar
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
2 to 3 teaspoons cold water

Filling

1 cup real semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (21-ounce) can raspberry pie filling
1 (6-ounce) container (1 1/4 cups) fresh raspberries

Garnish

Fresh mint leaves

Directions

Combine butter, sugar and egg yolk in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until smooth. Ad flour; beat at low speed until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add cold water, 1 teaspoon at a time, beating until flour is moistened and dough forms when pressed together with hands.

Press dough evenly onto bottom and up sides of ungreased 10-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Cut 1 1/2-inch "X" in center of dough with sharp knife. Fold dough back and pinch to form 3/4-inch high rim, leaving 2-inch hole in center. Press 12x12-inch piece aluminum foil into 2-inch ball. Place foil ball in center of hole in crust to hold up edges. Refrigerate 30 minutes.

Heat oven to 400°F.

Prick crust all over with fork. Bake 14-17 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely. Remove foil ball.

Heat 3/4 cup whipping cream in saucepan over medium heat 5-7 minutes or until it just comes to a boil.  Remove from heat; stir in chocolate chips until completely melted and smooth. Pour chocolate mixture into cooled crust. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or until set.

Spoon 1 cup raspberry pie filling over chocolate filling. Arrange fresh raspberries over pie filling. Brush 1/4 cup additional pie filling over raspberries with pastry brush. Refrigerate until serving time.

Garnish with whipped cream and mint leaves. Serve with remaining raspberry pie filling, if desired.

Recipe Tip

- To use 10-inch pie plate: Press dough evenly on bottom and up sides of pie plate. Do not cut “X” or make hole in center.

- For best results, the butter should not be too soft. Remove butter from refrigerator; cut into chunks and allow to soften at room temperature about 15 minutes.

We’re entering a new phase in our life as new parents – the dinnertime meltdown stage (or the “witching hour” as I like to call it). We rush home from daycare, singing “Wheels on the Bus” as many times as it takes to keep him entertained on the 10-minute car ride. It’s the same song and dance when we get home, while his daddy finishes up work and I’m hectically trying to empty the dishwasher, make dinner and keep our little guy from hiding the dog food between the couch cushions.
