Walnut tart

Yield: 10 Servings

Measure Ingredient
⅓ cup Butter or margarine; softened
¼ cup Sugar
1 Egg yolk
1 cup All-purpose flour
2 cups Coarsely chopped walnuts
⅔ cup Packed brown sugar
¼ cup Butter or margarine
¼ cup Dark corn syrup
½ cup Whipping cream; divided

FILLING

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add egg yolk; mix well. Add flour just until blended (mixture will be crumbly). Press onto bottom and up sides of an ungreased 9-inch tart pan with removeable bottom.

Bake at 375° for 12-14 minutes. Cool in the pan on a wire rack. Sprinkle nuts over crust. In a heavy saucepan, combine sugar, butter, corn syrup and 2 tbsp of cream. Boil and stir over medium heat for 1 minute. Pour over walnuts. Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until bubbly. Cool. Beat remaining cream until stiff. Serve tart at room temperature with whipped cream.
