Caramel Nut Tart

My mom loves caramel, nuts and cream cheese so when I found this recipe, I knew I had to try it.  Now it is a family favorite and is served at every get-together – Donna Urban, Glendolden, Pennsylvania.
 
10 ServingsPrep: 30 min. Bake: 15 min. + cooling

Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cold cream cheese, cubed
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons ice water
  • FILLING:
  • 1/3 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1-1/2 cups mixed nuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon Spice Islands® pure vanilla extract

Directions

  • In a small bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in cream cheese and butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball.
  • Roll out dough into a 10-in. circle. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-in. fluted tart pan with a removable bottom; trim edges.
  • Line unpricked pastry with a double layer of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 450° for 8 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack. Reduce heat to 400°.
  • For filling, in a small heavy saucepan, combine the butter, brown sugar and corn syrup. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; stir in nuts and vanilla. Spread into crust.
  • Place tart pan on a baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until bubbly. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 10 servings.
