Honey Caramel Pecan Tart Dessert Recipe

A tart recipe for that special occasion.

I had to come up with a pie recipe to shoot for my videography class.  Obviously I don’t follow the rules well, I had been wanting to try out this recipe I had come up with based on pecan bars.  Let me tell ya’ its good stuff.  I have a preference to tart recipes over pies, mostly because they can usually involve chocolate.

This was a great tart for Thanksgiving but would be just as awesome for Christmas, or New Years.

We are headed to Mexico for Christmas and New Years.  I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and a safe and fun New Years!

This recipe can be made ahead of time and refrigerated for a few days.  Just wrap up tight and bring to room temperature before serving.  You can also freeze for up to 3 months.  Leave the tart in the pan and wrap in plastic wrap and then in foil.  Let sit on counter,unwrapped for at least 8 hours before serving.
