Dulce de Leche Pecan Tart

Dulce de Leche Pecan Tart

Pecan pie is a holiday classic, but it isn’t one of my favorites. Most pecan pies have a filling of extra-sweet custard that outshines the wonderful pecans on the top of the pie, even if you take the time to roast your pecans ahead of time.

Bite sized tarts are a great dessert when you want to make something that can be served to a crowd without requiring utensils.

It is a combination that just says “summer” to me and I always look for opportunities to put these flavors together when I have fresh strawberries on hand. Strawberry Lemonade Muffins ...
