Macadamia nuts, with their rich flavor and buttery texture are wonderful in desserts. Here, they're nestled in a flaky crust with a creamy, brown sugar filling. Melted chocolate is drizzled over the top for a professional finish.

COMBINE flour, sugar and salt in a medium bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or two knives until mixture is crumbly. Stir in water with fork just until moistened. Shape into ball; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
PREHEAT oven to 425° F.
ROLL pastry into 11-inch circle on lightly floured surface. Place in 9 or 10-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Press pastry onto bottom and up sides of pan; turn under edges and crimp. Trim if needed.
BAKE tart on baking sheet for 8 to 10 minutes or until crust is very lightly browned.
COMBINE brown sugar and flour in medium bowl; stir until well blended. Gradually stir in cream. Pour into hot crust; sprinkle with nuts.
BAKE for another 20 to 25 minutes, or until filling is bubbly. Cool completely in pan on wire rack for 1 to 2 hours.
MICROWAVE morsels and vegetable shortening in small, heavy-duty plastic bag on HIGH power for 15 seconds; knead. Microwave at additional 10-second intervals, kneading until smooth. Cut tiny corner from bag; squeeze to drizzle over tart. Garnish with nuts. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight. Let stand for 15 minutes before serving.

Who wouldn't love this!
This is a very family-pleasing recipe. It is great for a special occasion -- a "show-off" dessert.
I made this for my boyfriend for our anniversary, and it turned out perfect. He loves recipes with nuts, and I wanted something different, so I tried it and he loved it. Similar to pecan pie, smooth, and just sweet enough. The only thing I changed was I did half whipping cream, and half fat free carnation milk to lower calories, and used white chocolate instead of plain for the topping. It was perfect.
It was so easy for me to make the Macadamia Tart. And when I took it to work, they thought I had stopped & bought it at a bakery. It's a great and yummy treat to have any time you want to give yourself a special treat.
Chocoholics delight for sure! It was a little hard to make but you will also enjoy it.
This tart looks like a "fancy" dessert but it was so easy and delicious!! Great for company and everday family dessert as well.
