White Chocolate Tart in time for The Championships Wimbledon
With The Championships Wimbledon about to start it’s the best excuse for a new take on the strawberry tart. My tart recipe is a mix of sweet white chocolate and ginger, topped with fresh fruit and chopped pistachios added for crunch.
Anyone for tennis and a slice of tart?
It is definitely a tart for those of you with a sweet tooth but the fresh fruit and nuts really do help make it an absolutely delicious treat! I love the crunch of the pistachios. If you use salted pistachios it will add an extra flavour. The salt and the sweet isn’t everyones cup of tea but I think they taste really good together.
White Chocolate and Ginger Tart Recipe
I absolutely love this recipe. It’s unusual to do white chocolate tarts and I think they will be very popular. They are sweet tarts but adding extra flavours to it like the ginger. I would also recommend adding some cinnamon to make it more Christmassy. Then top with a cranberry coolie.

In a pan warm up the double cream until it starts to bubble. Don’t let it boil and then remove from the heat.
