  • About

Nut tarts are a rich indulgence with a long pedigree. From the earliest recorded recipes, endless variations on sweetened nuts in pastry figure in the cookery collections of virtually every culture in the world.

Think of this tart as a sort of lightened pecan pie, but with a slightly bitter edge from the caramel and the walnuts that cuts through the sweet richness. This is a house favorite that I’ve been baking for years.
