    Armagnac Chocolate Almond Tart

    This chocolate almond tart is my twist on pecan pie. I use almonds instead of pecans and golden syrup instead of corn syrup. Both chocolate and Armagnac make this tart really special. Don't skip on toasting the almonds since it brings out the nuttiness of the pie. —Phoebe Saad, Framingham, Massachusetts
