New ROTW- Carmel Pecan Tart

I have been having a hard time lately with my internet connection, my apologies to anyone looking for this week's recipe. Here it is and it looks wonderful, I am going to make it for a wine and cheese party that my husband is attending tonight. Hopefully he will let me know what everyone thinks. Happy baking and please drop us a line anytime. We would love to know there are others out there sharing in our passion.

Prep: 20 min., Bake: 57 min., Cool: 1 hr., Cook: 5 min.

Yield: Makes 12 servings
3 1/2 cups coarsely chopped pecans
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup butter, cubed
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
2/3 cup butter
3 tablespoons whipping cream
1. Arrange pecans in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 5 to 7 minutes or until lightly toasted. Cool on a wire rack 15 minutes or until completely cool.

2. Pulse flour, powdered sugar, and 3/4 cup butter in a food processor 5 to 6 times or until mixture resembles coarse meal. Pat mixture evenly on bottom and up sides of a lightly greased 11-inch tart pan with removable bottom.

3. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack 15 minutes or until completely cool.

4. Bring brown sugar, honey, 2/3 cup butter, and whipping cream to a boil in a 3-qt. saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in toasted pecans, and spoon hot filling into prepared crust.

5. Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden and bubbly. Cool on a wire rack 30 minutes or until completely cool.

Caramel-Pecan Bars: Prepare recipe as directed, pressing crumb mixture evenly on bottom and 3/4 inch up sides of a lightly greased heavy-duty aluminum foil-lined 13- x 9-inch pan. When completely cool, using the aluminum foil as handles, carefully lift the tart from the pan, and transfer to a serving tray. Cut into squares.

This was such a great recipe Kim! It was so delicious and very easy. I followed the recipe exactly except I had to cut it in half and I baked it in a round cake pan. I think next time I'll try using salted butter instead of unsalted. I think the addition of a little salt would taste really good. This is definitely a keeper!
