Hazelnut Pâte Sablée

Ingredients: Hazelnut Pâte Sablée

  • 2.8 oz
    Callebaut Pure Roasted Hazelnut Paste
  • 8.8 oz
    Butter softened
  • 6.0 oz
    powdered sugar
  • 0.1 oz
    salt
  • 3.5 oz
    Eggs, whole
  • 4.4 oz
    hazelnut flour
  • 1.1 lb
    All purpose flour

Preparation: Hazelnut Pâte Sablée

  1. Mix the soft butter, which should be at around 24°C (75°F) with the hazelnut paste, the powdered sugar and the salt in a saucepan.
  2. Add the eggs slowly until completely incorporated into the butter mix.
  3. Add the hazelnut flour.
  4. Add the all-purpose flour until just incorporated.
  5. Mix until the dough is warm. Do not over mix to prevent the dough from shrinking in the oven.
  6. Pour the dough over a plastic sheet and make it square.
  7. Leave to rest in the refrigerator.
  8. Roll the dough out to 2.5-3 mm (0.1-0.12”) thickness. Use a plastic sheet to prevent the dough from sticking without the need to use flour.
  9. Using the bicycle, cut the dough into long strips of 26 cm (10.2”).
  10. Cover the dough strips with a plastic sheet. This will prevent them from drying.
  11. Put in the fridge for at least an hour.
  12. Using the 7.5 cm (3”) ring cutter, cut the dough into round discs and cover them with a plastic sheet to avoid drying. It is important that the width of the dough strips is the same as the height of the ring cutter.
  13. Put the 8 cm (3.15”) metal ring on the silicon mat, place the silicone strip into the mold and add the rectangular dough strip on the silicon strip.
  14. Cut off the excess with a knife and push the dough to the side.
  15. Place the 7.5 cm (2.95”) discs into the molds. Silicone strips ensure an even cooking regardless of the power of the oven and give a nice texture.
  16. Line the tart molds, bake at 160°C (320°F).
  17. Once the shells are baked, unmold and leave at 16-18°C (61-64°F).
