Got an iron skillet? Southern Comfort?
Then you have those special basics to make the best nutty skillet pecan tart (made like a pie) ever! Do you love that crispy top? Do you like a lot of nuts in your pie? Then this is the one for you.
We’ve always loved pecan pie/tart and always have it for holidays. But this one is good all year long as dessert. But it is NOT a diet dish by any means! ( See more Easy Recipes here.)
It is so rich and nutty that you only need a small piece.
Yeah….good luck with that! Just make it small because you will be back for seconds.
This tart is made with a touch of Southern Comfort which gives it a hint of flavor. You can use any liqueur you favor. Then the touch of molasses adds another subtlety to the flavor.
Use a seasoned iron skillet for this recipe. These have the iron handle so they make a great baking dish. If you are good at rolling out pie crust, by all means make your own. I have never been good at that so I use the boxed pie crust mix. Just mix according to directions and press it into your skillet. Try and get it as thin as you can. When you pre-bake it, it will puff up a little but settle back down when it cools.
This tart sets up quickly and will slice easily even while still slightly warm. This is a really nutty filling and we chopped the pecans mostly for the ease in slicing and eating. You can use whatever ratio of whole to chopped pecans that suits your taste.
It will be a new family favorite!
