What is the difference between Chocolate Tart and Chocolate Pie?

Chocolate Tart has shallow sides and only a bottom crust. Tarts are usually made with a pastry dough (flour, cold water, butter) to create a firm crumbly crust. A chocolate or any style tart is baked in a pan with a removable bottom to un-mold the tart before serving.

Chocolate Pie on the other hand can have a top and a bottom crust. The crust consisting of flour, salt, cold water and butter or lard to create a crispy, flaky crust. You usually serve your pie straight from the dish they are baked in.

What is Chocolate Ganache?

Chocolate Ganache is a pastry filling made by combining cream and chocolate. For this recipe I used dark chocolate chopped into small pieces with warm coconut milk. Its important to heat your cream and then pour it into the chocolate. Continue stirring until all the chocolate is melted. Then pour your chocolate mixture into the tart crust to set. Chilling the warm ganache allows it to firm into a delicious soft and decadent filling.
