Walnut And Coffee Tart With Coffee Cream



=== CRUST ===
1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter - (3/4 stic; cut small pieces
1 large egg yolk
1 tablespoon ice water
=== FILLING ===
1 1/4 cups chopped walnuts - (abt 5 oz)
2 tablespoons instant coffee granules
2 tablespoons water
1/2 cup dark brown sugar - (firmly packed)
3 large eggs
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup unsalted butter - (1/2 stick); melted, cooled
1/8 teaspoon salt
=== COFFEE CREAM ===
1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
1 teaspoon water
1 cup chilled whipping cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar

For Crust: Combine flour, brown sugar and salt in medium bowl. Add
butter
and cut in with fingers or pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse
meal. Beat egg yolk and water in small bowl to blend. Pour over flour
mixture. Stir with fork until mixture forms dough. Gather into ball;
flatten into disk. Wrap dough and chill until firm, at least 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Roll dough out on lightly floured surface
to
12-inch-diameter round. Roll up on rolling pin and transfer to
9-inch-diameter tart pan with removable bottom. Fit dough into pan and
trim edges. Freeze until firm, about 20 minutes.

Bake crust until golden brown, piercing with toothpick if crust bubbles,
about 15 minutes. Cool slightly. Maintain oven temperature.

For Filling: Place walnuts on cookie sheet and toast in oven until just
golden brown and fragrant, about 8 minutes. Cool. Reduce oven
temperature
to 350 degrees.

Dissolve instant coffee in 2 tablespoons water in large bowl. Add brown
sugar and whisk until smooth. Whisk in eggs, corn syrup, butter and
salt.
Stir in walnuts. Pour filling into prepared crust and bake until set,
about 30 minutes. Cool tart on rack. (Tart can be prepared 6 hours
ahead.
Cover loosely and let stand at room temperature.)

For Coffee Cream: Dissolve instant coffee in 1 teaspoon water in small
bowl. Whip cream and sugar until medium-soft peaks form. Add coffee
mixture and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Serve tart with
whipped cream.

This recipe yields 8 servings.
