Preparation

  • Step 1 - Vanilla pecan and caramel tart
    The crust :
    In a bowl, put the softened butter, the icing sugar, the vanilla sugar, the salt and the almond flour, and combine to get a creamy and smooth mix.
  • Step 2 - Vanilla pecan and caramel tart
    Add the egg and mix well. Add the flour, and mix using your hands to form a ball. Wrap the dough in some plastic foil and flatten it a little. Put in the fridge for 1 hour.
  • Step 3 - Vanilla pecan and caramel tart
    Roll the dough out and line the pie pan with it. Sting it with a fork, then bake 20 minutes at 350°F (180°C).
  • Step 4 - Vanilla pecan and caramel tart
    The salted caramel :
    Put the sugar in a pot at medium heat. Leave it melt and caramelize (shake the pot sometimes to stir). Once the caramel has formed, add the butter and mix well.
  • Step 5 - Vanilla pecan and caramel tart
    Then pour the cream and mix until the caramel is melted. Bring to a boil, then thicken it during 10 minutes, stiring regularly. Pour the caramel on the crust and put in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
  • Step 6 - Vanilla pecan and caramel tart
    The vanilla cream : Put the cream and the mascarpone in the freezer before using.
  • Step 7 - Vanilla pecan and caramel tart
    In a bowl, put the cream, the mascarpone, the vanilla and the sugar and whip.
  • Step 8 - Vanilla pecan and caramel tart
    With a piping bag and a star tip (optional), spread the vanilla cream on the caramel. Add pecan nuts on top.
  • Step 9 - Vanilla pecan and caramel tart
    There you are, your vanilla, pecan and caramel tart is ready!

Observations:

The salted caramel :Be careful of the splashes when you add the butter to the caramel.

The crust : Caution, don't knead more than necessary, you just have to get a smooth dough. If you don't flatten your crust before putting it in the fridge, it will be longer to cool down.

We made zig zag with the vanilla cream but you can spread it the way you want.
