Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, cubed
  • FILLING:
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter, cubed
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 1-1/3 cups salted cashews
  • 1 jar (3 ounces) macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 cup heavy whipping cream, divided

Directions

Place flour in a food processor. Add butter and cream cheese; cover and pulse just until mixture forms a ball. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out pastry. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 11-in. fluted tart pan with removable bottom; trim edges. Line unpricked pastry with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 450° for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Reduce heat to 400°.
In a large saucepan, combine the brown sugar, butter, honey and sugar. Cook and stir over medium heat until butter is melted. Bring to a boil; cook and stir 1 minute longer.
Remove from the heat; stir in nuts and 2 tablespoons cream. Pour into crust. Bake at 400° for 10-12 minutes or until bubbly. Cool on a wire rack.
In a small bowl, beat remaining cream until stiff peaks form; serve with tart. Yield: 16 servings.
