Chocolate Bourbon-Pecan Tart
The Inn at Little Washington Cookbook: A Consuming Passion
by Patrick O’Connell, 1996, Random House

“This chewy confection tastes like the Deep South. It keeps beautifully for three to four days in the refrigerator and can be cut into very thin wedges to serve with tea
or offered as a dessert along with a little bourbon-laced whipped cream. We always feature it on our buffet table during our Christmas Open House for the town
citizens – a group of bourbon aficionados.”

1 1/2 cups sugar
1/3 cup water
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup pecans
1/4 cup bourbon
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
1 whole egg
1 egg yolk
1 prebaked tart or pie shell (9 or 10 inches in diameter)
4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted

1.  In a small, heavy-bottomed saucepan, bring the sugar and water to a boil over medium heat. Cook until golden brown.
2.  Quickly remove the pan from the heat and slowly and carefully pour the cream into the caramelized sugar. (Caution: When the cream hits the hot sugar, it will steam up and spatter, so be sure to avert your face and protect your hands.)
3.  Cook the caramel-cream mixture over low heat for 3 minutes, stirring to dissolve any lumps of caramel.
4.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees [F.]
5.  Strain the mixture through a sieve and allow it to cool for 15 minutes.
6.  Place the pecans on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 5 to 7 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove and set aside. Increase the oven temperature to 400 degrees [F.]
7.  Whisk the bourbon, butter, egg, and yolk into the cooled caramel mixture. Stir in the toasted pecans.
8.  Brush the tart or pie shell with the melted chocolate and pour the filling into the shell. Bake in the center of the oven for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees [F.] and continue baking for an additional 15 minutes.

To serve:  Serve the tart at room temperature. Serves 8.
