    miss gracie's Note:

    Another wonderful Fall recipe, although I have made it year around whenever the chocolate/nut craving strikes! It is rather like a pecan pie pushed to an even higher level. Originally published about one year ago in Bon Appetit, I modified the recipe to use my favorite nuts. Any combination will work well - just use your immagination!

    Directions:

    1. 1
      FOR CRUST: Combine flour and sugar in a food processor.
    2. 2
      Add butter and cut in, using on/off turns, until mixture resembles coarse meal.
    3. 3
      Add 2 tablespoons cream and vanilla extract.
    4. 4
      Using on/off turns, blend until moist clumps form, adding more cream by tablespoonful if dough is dry.

    6. 6
      Press dough over bottom and up the sides of an 11-inch diameter tart pan with removable bottom.
    7. 7
      (I used a 9-inch pan with very little crust and filling left over.) (Dough can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill, but let stand at room temperature 30 minutes before filling.) FOR FILLING: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    8. 8
      Combine all toasted nuts in a food processor; chop coarsely, using on/off turns.

      Cool tart in pan on rack 30 minutes.
    15. 15
      Push up pan bottom to release tart.
    16. 16

      These were really, really, really good! Great, even. I made a small change and made this recipe into individual, 3" round tarts, and I used chunked up bittersweet chocolate in place of the chips, but other than that, the recipe stayed the same. We loved them! Sweet and nutty - this would in no way be the same if you used raw nuts. The toasting really sends the flavor soaring. I really loved these. I thought they looked elegant, had a great texture, and really "wow"ed my husband. Plus they passed the "toddler" test, so they will definitely be made again. I especially like these as individual tarts - great filling - thank you so much, Miss Gracie.
