When you are looking for a dessert just for two this is it. Make a quick pastry. Add pecans to the tart shell. Pour over the filling and then bake in the oven.


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/8 tsp salt

  • 3 Tbsp shortening

  • 4 tsp cold water

  • Filling
  • 1/3 cup pecan halves

  • 1 large egg

  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1/3 cup corn syrup

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • whipped cream, optional


  • Ina small bowl, combine flour and salt, cut the shortening until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Divide dough in half. Roll each half into a 6-inch circle. Transfer to two 4 1/2 inch tart pans, fit pastry into pans trimming if necessary. Arrange pecans in shells.
  • In another small bowl, whisk egg, brown sugar, corn syrup, and vanilla. Pour over pecans. Place shells on a baking sheet, bake 375F for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Top with whipped cream if desired.
