This delicious Orange Walnut Tart is like the cousin of a Thanksgiving pecan pie. It's flavored with Grand Marnier and has an incredible flavor and texture!
1unbaked pie shell
1cuppacked light brown sugar
3/4cuplight corn syrup
2cupswalnut halvestoasted to bring out their flavor
2tbsppacked orange zest
3extra large eggslightly beaten
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
In a heavy bottomed saucepan, bring the butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently so it doesn’t burn.
Once it comes to a boil, keep it at a boil for 1 minute, then remove it from the stove and stir in the walnuts, Grand Marnier, and orange zest. Let the mixture cool for about 5 minutes, then whisk the eggs into the mixture until it’s smooth. Pour the filling into the tart shell, place the tart on a sheet pan so you don’t make a mess in the oven, and bake for 40 minutes, until it doesn’t jiggle when you move it around. Let it cool on a wire rack.
