White Chocolate Torte

White Chocolate Torte

Ingredients

  • Here's the recipe I made this past Friday. This should be enough to fill a 8-inch pie plate.
  • White Chocolate Torte (mostly raw, vegan)
  • Filling:
  • 2 cups soaked raw cashews, whole or pieces, soaked overnight
  • 1/2 cup agave nectar
  • 1/2 cup melted cocoa butter
  • 1 capful of vanilla (1/4 teaspoon)
  • Pinch of salt (1/8 teaspoon or less)
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup cocoa powder (optional, use to taste for a dark chocolate filling)
  • Crust:
  • 1 1/2 cups raw pecans
  • 1/2 cup almond meal or flour
  • 2 Tablespoons melted cocoa butter
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 capful of vanilla (1/4 teaspoon)
  • Pinch of salt (1/8th teaspoon or less)
  • 3 - 4 Dates, pitted and chopped (optional, but I did use them)
  • Fruit Topping (optional):
  • 1 cup of fresh or frozen berries
  • 1 cup of agave

Instructions

In a saucepan, gently heat cocoa butter on very low heat until all if it melts. A double boiler works best for this. Remove from heat.
Pulse the pecans in a food processor until they resemble small crumbs. Do not over process, or you will end up with pecan butter. Add the rest of the ingredients for the crust to the food processor and pulse until combined. Press evenly into your pie plate with your palms and place it in the freezer to chill for at least 15 minutes.
Put all of the filling ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. If it will not blend at first add water (or agave if you decided to add the cocoa powder) one tablespoon at a time until it blends. Pour into the chilled pie crust and smooth out the top. If you are multiplying this recipe it's best to use the same measurements listed above one batch at a time in the blender. Loading more than that may make it difficult to blend.
Cover and chill in the freezer for a few hours or overnight, then transfer it to the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before serving. Serve with the fruit topping of your choice (or not).
