Choc Bourbon Nut Tart

A twist on the classic pecan pie, this tart is a nut lover’s dream.

Serves: 8
Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking time: 45 minutes
  • 50g butter
  • 2/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup golden syrup
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup bourbon or whisky
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups dry roasted mixed nuts
  • 100g dark chocolate chunks
  • 250g plain flour
  • 125g chilled salted butter, cubed
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons cold water

Roll out pastry and line a 28cm fluted quiche tin with removable base. Prick base with a fork, line with baking paper and load with rice or beans. Blind bake at 200°C for 10 minutes, remove loading and bake a further 10-15 minutes until light golden. Meanwhile, simmer butter, sugar and golden syrup in a saucepan for 5 minutes until sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool. Lightly whisk eggs, bourbon and vanilla together and whisk in sugar mixture. Arrange nuts and chocolate into tart shell and pour over mixture. Bake at 180°C for 30 minutes until set. Allow to cool on a wire rack. Serve with cream or ice cream.

Blend flour and butter together in a food processor until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add egg and water and pulse until mixture forms a ball of dough. Lightly knead, flatten slightly and refrigerate for 10 minutes.
