I made this recipe for Thanksgiving as a lighter alternative to pecan pie. I served it with homemade bourbon whipped cream and it was a huge hit! It has just the right amount of gooey filling without over doing it; and the pecans on the top are perfectly toasted. Since I didn't have a tart pan, I used a pie plate, which worked out just fine.



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine first 10 ingredients, stirring well with a whisk. Stir in pecans. Roll dough into a 13 inch circle; fit into a 9 inch removable-bottom tart pan coated with cooking spray. Trim excess crust using a sharp knife. Spoon sugar mixture into prepared crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until center is set. Cool completely on a wire rack

Place chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave at HIGH 1 minute. Stir until smooth. Drizzle chocolate over tart.

Make the tart a day ahead, and store it in the refrigerator. Best served with Bourbon Whipped Cream (below).


To make Bourbon Whipped Cream: I whipped one pint of whipping cream until soft peaks formed. I added 3 tablespoons powdered sugar then 3 tablespoons bourbon and continued beating until peaks formed.

These tarts taste just like pecan tarts but contain NO NUTS. They are absolutely a hit where ever I take them. Enjoy!

Heat until dissolved

Add: Pour into prepared or home made tart shells or pie shell. Bake at 350 degrees F for 40 minutes.

At Christmas, I top off with a red cherry!
