Recipe: Pecan Tart

Is this one of the laziest desserts ever invented? Possibly. Could I have fairly easily made my own sweet pastry for this instead of taking short cuts? Probably. Is this one of the most delicious and easy puddings I have ever made? Definitely. 5 minutes to make, 25 minutes to bake, and then just a little bit of cooling time. Perfect for when you have a real sweet tooth, or have friends over and not much time to make something sweet for entertaining! This dessert is really nice served with extra pouring cream over the top.

Pecan Tart (serves 8)
1 X Edlers 195g sweet pastry case
180g pecans, roughly chopped
170g golden syrup
50g sugar
100g butter
50ml single cream

1) Preheat oven to 175C. Melt together all the ingredients (except the pastry case!) in a small saucepan until hot and well combined.
2) Pour pecan mixture into the pastry case. Bake the tart in the oven for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven, and allow to cool in the fridge for at least an hour. Remove from the foil case, slice and serve!
