Turtle Praline Tart Recipe

This rich dessert is my own creation, and I’m very proud of it. It’s easy enough to make for every day but special enough to serve guests or take to a potluck.

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet refrigerated pie pastry
  • 36 caramels
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream, divided
  • 3-1/2 cups pecan halves
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450°. Unroll pastry on a lightly floured surface. Transfer to an 11-in. fluted tart pan with removable bottom; trim edges.
  2. Line unpricked pastry shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake 8 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5-6 minutes longer or until light golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
  3. In a large saucepan, combine caramels and 1/2 cup cream. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until caramels are melted. Stir in pecans. Spread filling evenly into crust. Drizzle with melted chocolate.
  4. Refrigerate 30 minutes or until set. Whip remaining cream; serve with tart. Yield: 16 servings.                         turtle
