Caramel Pecan Tart


Happy Saturday,
Hope you have a started off your Saturday with a spring in your step. Today I am sharing with you a variation to the Pecan Pie, this would have to be one of my absolute favourite desserts, there are many recipes around but if you are a caramel lover then this one is for you, it's quick, simple and very tasty and paired with whipped cream or ice-cream just makes it amaze balls.





According to Wiki claims have been made that the dish existed in the early 1800s in Alabama and attempts to trace the dish's origin have not found any recipes dated earlier than 1886. The earliest recorded recipes produce a boiled custard with pecans added, which is then baked in a pie crust (YUK - thank gosh it has evolved since then)

Some have stated that French people invented pecan pie soon after being introduced to the pecan nut by Americans, the french have always made a good dessert that's for sure - Oh La La

So go NUTS and knock yourself out cause you will love this - trust me....




Ingredients

400g Coarsely Chopped Pecans
2 cps Flour
2/3 cp Icing Sugar
100g Butter, cubed
1/2 cp Brown Sugar
1/2 cp Honey
2/3 cp Butter
3 tbs Whipped Cream

Method

1. Bake pecans in oven, 180c for 5-7 minutes or until lightly toasted
2. Mix flour, icing sugar, 3/4 cp butter (cubed) until it resembles a course crumb. Pat mixture into a tart pan. Bake  for 20 minutes or until lightly browned
3. Bring brown sugar, honey, 2/3 cp butter and whipped cream to boil. Stir in pecans, spoon into crust
4. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Cool and serve
