Pecan Crostata

ingredients preparation

1. Roll the pie dough out to ¼” thickness. Cut large 6” rounds out of the dough and bring corners in to create a pentagon or hexagon shape. Pinch these corners down.
2. Using a fork, gently poke holes in the dough so the dough doesn’t rise too much in the oven.
3. Beat the egg gently until it is homogenous. Brush the egg onto the crust as an egg wash. Mold foil into the interior corners of the dough and fill with beans or pie weights.
4. Blind bake the crusts at 360° Fahrenheit until the edges are a light to medium golden color. Remove the crostatas from the oven and remove the foil and pie weights from them.
5. Fill the centers with just enough pecan pie filling so it doesn’t over-flow. Top the filling with whole pecan halves and pieces of Van Leer Tulsa 55% Dark Chocolate.
6. Bake at 340° Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes or until the filling in bubbly and amber colored. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Drizzle with the melted and tempered Van Leer Tulsa 55% Dark Chocolate.
7. Top with whiskey braised peaches and chocolate whipped cream.
