Directions

  • Combine flour, brown sugar and nuts in a large bowl; cut in butter
  • until mixture resembles coarse meal. Mix in milk and vanilla with a
  • fork just until blended. Pat onto bottom and up the sides of an
  • 11-in. tart pan; set aside.
  • For filling, melt chocolate and chips in the top of a double boiler

  • large bowl and combine with sugar. Add eggs and vanilla; blend well.
  • Gradually add flour, blending well after each addition. Add nuts.
  • Pour over pastry.
  • Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes, or until center is just set and
  • toothpick comes out clean. Cool on wire rack.
  • Meanwhile, for frosting, melt chocolate in a small saucepan over low
  • heat. Add milk, butter, yolk and vanilla. Heat, stirring vigorously,
  • until smooth and thick, about 5 minutes. Spread over tart. Garnish
  • with whipped cream and pecans if desired. Yield: 10-12 servings.
