Chocolate Walnut Tart

Why serve ordinary pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving when your guests will swoon over a chocolatey, nutty, absolutely yummy tart instead? It starts with an easy shortbread crust that comes together quickly in the food processor, and it's topped with a filling that requires no stovetop cooking. If the tart isn't rich enough, you can always gild the lily and serve it with homemade vanilla sauce or whipped cream.



  • 1 9-inch tart pan
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • ¼ cup powdered (confectioners) sugar
  • 1 egg whisked in a small bowl
  • 3 tbsp chilled butter cut into small pieces

  • 2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2/3 cup Karo corn syrup
  • 2 tbsp melted butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 6 oz semisweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 1 cup toasted walnuts, chopped
  • Mix eggs, sugar, corn syrup, butter and vanilla together in a bowl.
  • Add chopped nuts and melted chocolate.
  • Pour into chilled tart dough.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes until set in middle.Cool before serving.

  2. In a bowl, whisk together egg yolks and sugar.
  3. Slowly whisk hot milk into egg mixture, a little at a time, until all milk is added.
