Polish Chocolate Mazurek (Pastry)

Hi,
This recipe is usually used in Poland for Easter. It is very good and relatively easy to make. I saw that you have some Polish cake recipes, but don't have a single recipe for a "mazurek." So anyway, here is one.

For the dough:
300 g flour
200 g butter
100 g sugar
1 egg yolk
2 table spoons of cream
For the top:
400 g dark chocolate
200 g heavy cream
1 spoon of butter
Almonds or other nuts for deco

Preheat the oven at 200°C – 390°F

Knead the flour, butter, sugar, cream and yolk to smooth dough. Cover the dough with plastic foil and place it in a fridge for 30 minutes. Roll the dough until ¼” or thinner. Move the dough onto 2 rectangular forms (around 15 x 13 inches), prick the dough with a fork, bake 15 minutes in 200°C.

Melt the chocolate in a steam bath, add butter, cream, and mix for 15 minutes. Pour the chocolate mixture onto the baked bottom even it out with a spatula or a knife and decorate with the almonds or other nuts.
