This is the standby tart of Stars, and is a hybrid of French almond tart and American pecan pie.



Heat the oven to 350°F.

Bake the tart shell for 10 minutes. Press any bubbles in the pastry down with a spoon and push up the sides if necessary. Cook until golden, about 5 more minutes. Let cool completely.

Mix the eggs and brown sugar together in a bowl. Add the corn syrup, salt, bourbon, butter, and vanilla extract and mix together. Stir in the pecan pieces. Pour the mixture
