IMG_8295Salted caramel sauce/盐渍焦糖
– Heat granulated sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly with a rubber spatula. Sugar will form clumps and eventually melt into a thick brown, amber-coloured liquid as you continue to stir. Be careful not to burn

– Once sugar is completely melted, immediately add the butter. Be careful in this step because the caramel will bubble rapidly when the butter is added

– Stir the butter into the caramel until it is completely melted, about 2-3 minutes
黄油搅拌至完全融化,约 2-3分钟

– Very slowly, drizzle in heavy cream. Since the heavy cream is colder than the caramel, the mixture will rapidly bubble and/or splatter when added. Allow the mixture to boil for 1 minute. It will rise in the pan as it boils
慢慢加入重奶油。因奶油温度比焦糖低,焦糖会再次起泡。所以加入重奶油时需特别小心。加入重奶油后,让其沸腾 1分钟,直到焦糖升至奶锅顶面

– Remove from heat and stir in salt. Allow to cool down before using or pour it into a container to store it.  Don’t worry if the sauce seems a bit too thin at first, it will thicken as it cools

– Cover the caramel tightly and store for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator. Warm the caramel up for a few seconds before using in a recipe

Nutella ganache/榛果巧克力淋面酱
– In double boiler, combine cream and chocolate pieces, stirring constantly until dissolved and smooth. Remove from heat and stir in Nutella. Set aside

Chocolate sable dough/巧克力奶油酥面团
– Place the flour, almond meal, cocoa powder and cold butter into a mixing bowl and rub the ingredients between your hands until it forms a sandy texture. This should take a few minutes

– Add the salt, baking powder, sugar and egg, then mix with one hand to make a dough ball

– Flatten dough into a rectangle. Wrap the dough in cling film and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes before using
面团擀开成长方形,裹上保鲜膜冷藏自少 20分钟

– Prepare four 10×2.5cm fluted tart moulds by brushing the inside with softened butter, dust with flour and shake off any excess—this will ensure the dough doesn’t stick to the mould after baking * i used 10 mini tart moulds
将 4个 10 x 2.5厘米的塔模涂抹黄油液、筛上面粉,并将多余的面粉拍除 ~ 此步骤可确保面团在烘焙后不会沾模 * 我用了10个迷你塔模

– Roll dough to a 5 millimetre thickness. Cut out 4 circles of dough using a round cutter with a 13cm diameter. Place a circle over a tart mould & press in the dough lightly with your fingers, from the centre, around the base & then up the sides. Take the rolling pin and roll over the top of the mould – this will cut the top edges, giving you a clean finish. Rest the dough in the refrigerator for 20 minutes
面团擀成 5毫米后,用13厘米饼干模裁切出4个面皮。面皮压到塔模里后,用擀面杖在模子顶部擀平,将多余面团切除。冷藏 20分钟

– Preheat the oven to 170ºC. Line the tart base with parchment and baking beans. Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes * i baked for 10 mins, then removed parchment paper and beans, and continued to bake for 20 mins. Allow to cool
烤箱预热至 170摄氏度。面皮铺上烘焙纸和摆放一些豆子或小石块之类的重物. 烤约 10-15分钟*我烤了 10分钟后,将烘焙纸和豆子去除,再烤 10分钟。去除烤箱后,进行冷却

Assemble tarts/组合

– Spoon 1-2 tsp (depending on the size of the tart moulds) salted caramel sauce into the pre-baked tart base * i used 1 tsp. Then pour or spoon the Nutella ganache onto the caramel sauce. Garnish with chopped toasted hazelnuts * i topped with italian meringue and browned it with a blow torch
以塔模大小为主,在烤好的奶油酥塔里勺入 1-2小匙盐渍焦糖 *我用了一小匙。之后,倒入榛子巧克力淋面酱。撒上切碎榛子收尾 *我用了意大利蛋白霜;裱上后以喷火枪收尾
