Butterscotch-Pecan Tart

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare Rich Tart Pastry. On a lightly floured surface, use your hands to slightly flatten dough. Roll dough from center to edge into an 11-inch circle. Wrap pastry circle around rolling pin; unroll into a 9-inch tart pan that has a removable bottom. Ease pastry into pan without stretching it. Press pastry into fluted side of tart pan; trim edge. Do not prick pastry. Line pastry with a double thickness of foil. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove foil. Bake for 5 to 6 minutes more or until light brown. Cool slightly on a wire rack. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare Creamy Butterscotch Sauce. Transfer 1-1/4 cups of the warm sauce to a medium bowl. Add pecans, chocolate pieces, and butterscotch pieces, stirring until pieces are melted. Spread mixture evenly in baked tart shell. Bake about 15 minutes or until edge of filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack.
  3. Remove side of tart pan. Serve tart with remaining sauce, and, if desired, whipped cream and chocolate curls. Makes 12 servings.
