These White Chocolate Raspberry Tarts are quick and easy to make with shortbread cookies and a white chocolate mousse filling.
I am so happy to be working with Walker’s Shortbread. Walker’s provided the cookies for this recipe, however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
White Chocolate Raspberry Tarts
I love Mini Tarts. There is something just so personal and special about them. Maybe it’s the little size? Maybe it’s the entire dessert on my plate? Whatever the reason I just adore them! I’ve had the Mousse recipe tucked away just waiting for the right accessory to make it.
Walkers sent me a variety of Shortbread cookies to try. Mr. Quart’s favorite was the Pure Butter Vanilla Shortbread. I think I got maybe two of those. The traditional Pure Butter Shortbread were yummy when dipped in Chocolate! My Little Cup liked those. I liked the Ginger ones and then I tried the Raspberry Thins. Oh boy! The raspberry ones just called out to be made into a tart crust! They would make the Perfect Crust to my White Chocolate Mousse! Needless, to say, the family loved the cookies!

- Place a 1/4 cup cream into a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. While whisking, slowly add half the egg to the cream and temper the eggs. Keep whisking so that the eggs don’t cook. Combine eggs and cream and return to saucepan and return to stove. Continue cooking until the mixtures is thick and coats the back of a spoon.
- Pour the hot mixture over the chocolate and allow it to sit. Do not stir. Let the heat slowly melt the white chocolate for 5 minutes before stirring. If not all the chocolate has melted, use a double boiler to aid in melting the chocolate. Set aside when smooth.
- In your mixer with a whisk attachment, whip 1 cup cream and sugar until soft peaks form. Fold half the whipped cream into the melted chocolate. Fold in remaining cream.
- Spoon the mousse into the tart pans and return to the fridge for another hour.

Optional Raspberry Juice
