Chocolate Pecan Tart

Before this baking project, I had never used a tart pan before. When my MIL asked me to bake a pie for Thanksgiving, I searched Pinterest. I found this tart recipe and honestly, the pan was the biggest reason I picked this. I only have a deep pie dish and the pie dough that I had was not big enough. A tart pan fit my needs more!

This recipe showed me that pie is 100x easier than cookies!! J had made the pie dough a few weeks prior and froze it for me. So all I had to do was make the filling. The hardest part of this tart was arranging the pecans. However, I heavily recommend you take the time to do so, as it makes for a pretty presentation. The only change I made in the recipe was to omit the bourbon.

I'm linking up with AP at I Love You More Than Carrots for "Hey, That's Pin-tastic!"

I'm working on my plan for holiday baking now. I have plans to make several treats with my pastry chef sister and give out some treat boxes to friends. Wish me luck!
