No Bake Almond Butter Tart with Speculoos Cookie Crust


http://schneiderchen.de | © 2016 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com




This features a creamy, rich roasted almond butter-ricotta cheese filling in a no bake speculoos cookie crust. I have used homemade roasted almond butter rather than the peanut butter used in the original recipe, but any other nut butter will also work. Also, the recipe called for chocolate ganache as the topping, but I just simply garnished the tarts with a few drizzles of melted white chocolate and some chopped pistachio nuts.

CrustFillingTopping
  • 220 g Speculoos cookies
  • 60 g Butter, melted
  • 200 g Ricotta cheese
  • 180 g Homemade roasted almond butter
  • 1/3 tsp Vanilla powder
  • 2 tbsp Coconut oil, softened
  • 10 drop Vanilla-flavoured liquid stevia
  • White chocolate, chopped
  • Pistachio nuts, chopped
  1. Finely crush cookies in a food processor or blender. Melt butter. In a bowl stir the melted butter and crushed cookies together. Firmly press down cookie mixture into two 12-cm tart pans or one 24-cm pan. Place in the refrigerator while making the filling.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the ricotta cheese, almond butter, vanilla powder, coconut oil and liquid stevia together until fluffy with an electric mixer.
  3. Scrape the mixture into the tart shells and smooth the surface with a spatula. Return to the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight.
  4. Melt the white chocolate in a microwave and drizzle over the tarts. Garnish with pistachio nuts.

Total yum! So pretty, too! Ricotta makes the best desserts in my opinion, but then again so does anything with speculoos!

THis would be perfect to make, if I can get my hands on the ingrediants, on hot days . Using oven during hot days is like turning the whole house into one :)
