Definitely gave this recipe 5 star. My friend emailed me this recipe the other day, and it was absolute the best pecan tart I had ever made. There were lots of pecans in it, there were ground pecans in the crust, chopped pecans in the filling and halved pecans on top. Using both brown sugar and maple syrup was a brillant idea, which made the filling sweet, but not overwhelm.

By coating halved pecans with maple mixture almost created candy-like pecans, which was another hit. The crust was crumbly and perfectly delicious with the filling. It's a Thanksgiving winner pecan tart recipe, no doubt.
