Nut and Chocolate Chip Tart
Ingredients
  • 1  recipe Pastry for Single-Crust Pie (see recipe below)
  • 3  eggs
  • 1  cup  light-colored corn syrup
  • 1/2  cup  packed brown sugar
  • 1/3  cup  butter, melted and cooled
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla
  • 1  cup  coarsely chopped salted mixed nuts
  • 1/2  cup  miniature semisweet chocolate pieces
  • 1/3  cup  miniature semisweet chocolate pieces (optional)
  • 1  tablespoon  shortening (optional)
Directions

1. Prepare and roll out Pastry for Single-Crust Pie. Line an 11-inch tart pan with a removable bottom with pastry. Press pastry into fluted sides of tart pan and trim edges. Do not prick pastry.

2. For filling, in a large bowl beat eggs slightly with a fork. Stir in corn syrup. Add brown sugar, melted butter, and vanilla, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Stir in nuts and the 12 cup chocolate pieces. Place pastry-lined tart pan on a baking sheet; place baking sheet on the oven rack. Carefully pour filling into tart pan. Bake pie in a 350 degrees oven about 40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean; cool on a wire rack.

3. To serve, cut tart into slices; transfer to dessert plates. If desired, in a small heavy saucepan melt the 13 cup chocolate pieces and shortening over very low heat. Immediately remove from heat; stir until smooth. Cool slightly. Drizzle over tart slices (see tip, page 247). Cover and chill remaining tart for up to 2 days.
