Walnut Caramel Tart.

Walnut Caramel Tart.

My eternal confusion... is this a pie or a tart?.

We are worried about our country so many things are being said in the streets and written in the newspapers. Please join me in prayer for the sake of Venezuela.




The weather was too hot and I cut this when it was still hot
so I did not place the scoop of icream on top for the pic


Tart Shell.

2 ½ cups all purpose flour.

½ cup corn starch.

½ cup + 2 tablespoons margarine or butter.

1- With a whisk or the tip of your fingers mix all the ingredients until they look like bread crumbs.

2- Distribute these crumbs all over a tart pan and press with a measuring cup until the edge and bottom of the pan are covered, chill for 30 minutes.

3- Prick the bottom of the tart shell with a fork and bake for 20 minute at 190 °C.

Tart Filling.

250 gr. Walnut (coarsely chopped).

1 can sweetened condensed milk.

1 tablespoon maple syrup.

1 teaspoon butter or vanilla essence. (Optional)

½ cup salted butter or margarine.

½ cup brown sugar.

1- Place sugar, butter, maple syrup and sweetened condensed milk in a heavy bottomed sauce pan and cook always stirring for about 20 minutes.

2- Add the walnuts and let rest for about 10 minutes then add the butter essence and ´pour in the pre baked pie shell.

3- Bake until the caramel looks thick and is golden brown.

4- Let cool room temperature and cool in refrigerator before eating.
