Low Carb Walnut Pecan Tart

I have a cook book that I have had for a gazillion years which has a recipe for the Walnut Pecan Tart which I have made, but not for maybe 28-30 years and for sure not successfully.  My memory is that it was to die for and let’s face it we all have fears and mine was failing to make a recipe LCHF and keto for diabetics that would even work.  Then, I kinda forgot about it until a couple of weeks ago when I made a Basic Pie Crust just to have on hand and take fresh pictures of.  I stuck it in the freezer and then began stewing on how to maybe make that danged low carb walnut pecan tart.  I did try to make a low carb pecan pie a couple of years ago using a low carb-keto blogger’s recipe that said to use glycerin and it was a disaster.  The glycerin jacked my blood sugar through the roof and I can assure you, this one does not and if you are diabetic I urge you to always check your blood sugar levels.

Walnut Pecan Tart
Print
Smaller Crust 8”
  1. 1¾ C Almond Flour
  2. ½ C Ground Pecans
  3. 6 T Just Like Sugar Brown*** (Paleo) Or 9 Drops Liquid Sucralose***
  4. ½ C Melted Butter
Filling
  1. 2 Eggs
  2. ¾ C Just Like Sugar Brown***
  3. ½ C Melted Butter
  4. ¼ C SugarFree Maple Syrup***
  5. 2 T Heavy Cream
  6. 1 t Vanilla Extract
  7. 2 T Brandy (Optional)
  8. ½ C Chopped Walnuts
  9. ½ C Chopped Pecans
Crust
  1. Preheat oven to 350˚.
  2. Mix all ingredients and press into an 8"x1¼” removable bottom cake pans or corresponding sized spring-form pan.
  3. Blind bake crust 12-15 minutes and then “tamp down” as it will puff up. Return to oven for about 5-10 additional minutes or until it starts to turn just ever so slightly brown. If it has puffed up again knock it back down.
  4. Leave oven on.
Filling
  1. Add eggs, Just Like Sugar Brown, syrup, melted butter, vanilla to medium bowl & beat until smooth.
  2. Add heavy cream and brandy, if using, and mix thoroughly.
  3. Fold in nuts, pour into pie shell, and bake for 25-30 minutes. Tart will puff up and then fall when removed from the oven and should just giggle a little in the center.
  4. Put on rack and cool completely.
  5. For the very best results cover and refrigerate for at least 4-5 hours as the tart will get really thick just like any other pecan pie.
  6. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream.

Notes
  1. Nutritionals include crust.
  2. For a pecan tart or pie, substitute the walnuts for more pecans.
  3. Don’t think your crust will be dry. The filling soaks into it and it becomes just as dense and chewy as the filling.
  4. Nuts will not float to the top but stay nicely placed throughout the tart. (See Picture)
  5. Absolutely no need to grease pan as crust has so much butter in it. Each wedge will come out slicker than a whistle.
  6. Don't ask me how you can turn the ingredients listed into an absolutely fabulous low carb walnut pecan tart. It is beyond me and with a keto fat ratio of 91%.
