Lemon Tart

Serves 8

For the crust:                          
2/3 cup pecans, lightly toasted & cooled                   
1 cup graham cracker crumbs             
¼ cup granulated sugar                      
4 tablespoons (½ stick) unsalted butter, melted & cooled                 

For the filling:                        
2 large egg yolks                    
1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk 
½ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice              

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a food processor, finely grind the pecans with the graham cracker crumbs and the sugar.  Blend in the melted butter.

Press the mixture onto the bottom and sides of a 9” pie dish (I prefer a tart pan with removable sides) and bake until lightly browned, about 8 minutes.  Let the pie crust cool on a rack.

In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks with the condensed milk.  Whisk in the lemon juice, a little at a time, until the filling is well mixed.  Spoon the filling into the pie crust.

Bake for about 15 minutes, or until the filling is set.  Let the pie cool on a rack.  Then chill for at least one hour.

Garnish with whipped cream and fresh berries if desired.
