Author Notes: My Norwegian Grandma used to make this tart with Walnuts, because they grew on her trees, but it is also very good using chopped pecans or sliced almonds.Renee Cahoon

Serves: 6-8

  • 1 teaspoon Grand Marnier (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400
  2. Mix sugar, cream and grand marnier in pan, stir and heat to a rolling boil.
  3. Remove from heat and mix in walnuts and let stand 10 minutes, then pour filling into pre-baked tart shell.
  4. Bake 30-40 minutes. The darker the color, the crisper the tart. If you want soft and chewy, take out when color is light brown.
  5. Cool on rack until set (about 10-15 minutes). Cool thoroughly before removing from the pan.
