Simple Pecan Pie

For this very fast and delicious nutty pie you will need a 24-cm flan dish.

300 gr shortcrust pastry thawed if frozen

for the filling:

100 gr pecans
1 tangerine
50 gr blanched almonds
3 eggs
70 gr butter
200 gr sugar
2 tbsp corn flour
50 gr melted dark chocolate
cinnamon, nutmeg

For decoration:

100 gr pecan halves

Place the dough on a floured surface and roll gently with a pin. Line the flan dish with the pastry, prick the base with a fork and store in the fridge for an hour.

In a food processor blend the nuts, add the tangerine segments and blend well.
Transfer the mixture in a bowl, add the butter, eggs and sugar gradually, whisking. Add the spices, melted chocolate and at the end the corn flour.

Pour the mixture over the pastry. Bake on 180 degrees for 10 minutes, then carefully decorate the top with the pecan halves and bake for more 30 minutes.

I am mad about pecans, so this pecan pie is to die for as far as I am concerned, usually when I go to the supermarket I can't leave without a pecan plat (puff pastry)...thanx for the lovely recipe..
