Let's Make It
Mix flour and sugar in medium bowl until blended. Cut in 1/2 cup butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add vanilla; mix well. Press onto bottom and 1-inch up side of 9-inch springform pan or tart pan with removable bottom. Refrigerate 30 min. Heat oven to 425ºF. Bake crust 10 min.; cool completely.
Reserve 1/2 oz. chocolate for garnish. Chop remaining chocolate; place in medium microwaveable bowl. Add cream and remaining butter; microwave on HIGH 2 min. or until chocolate is almost melted, stirring every minute. Stir until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended.
Reserve a few raspberries for garnish. Spread remaining raspberries onto bottom of crust; cover with chocolate mixture. Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm. Meanwhile, make curls from reserved chocolate (see Tip); refrigerate until ready to use.
Run knife around tart to loosen from rim of pan; remove rim. Let tart stand at room temperature 30 min. before serving. Garnish with reserved raspberries and chocolate curls.
White chocolate and raspberries are a winning combination in this special occasion dessert.
Substitute a frozen 9-inch pastry shell, prepared as directed on package, for the homemade crust.
How to Make Chocolate Curls
Warm remaining chocolate by microwaving it on HIGH for a few seconds or just until you can smudge it with your thumb. Hold the chocolate piece steadily, then draw a vegetable peeler slowly over the flat bottom of the chocolate piece, allowing a thin layer of chocolate to curl as it is peeled off the bottom to make delicate curls.
Prepare using drained thawed frozen rapberries.
