Ellise Pierce’s Pecan Salty Caramel Tart – Design*Sponge

This week’s recipe for a Pecan Salty Caramel Tart comes from blogger and cookbook author Ellise Pierce, also known as the Cowgirl Chef. Ellise mixes elements of Texan and French cuisines to make her own fusion cooking. The pecan salty caramel tart draws on the pecan from her home state and the tart, a cornerstone of French pastry. The result is an incredibly sweet pie that is packed with pecans. (Warning: It is highly addictive!) The fleur de sel cuts through and balances out some of the sweetness, but there’s no way around it. If you don’t like sweet sweets and don’t like pecans, you should try only a tiny slice. If you love pecans, you should eat the whole pie yourself. The best part of making pies and tarts, as you’ll notice, is that you don’t have to be terribly neat or precise when you’re rolling out the crust because any holes can be patched, filled and covered by the filling! This crust is so great that I made two batches and have one in the freezer to experiment with later! — Kristina
