Recipe: Haldimand Maple Hazelnut Butter Tarts

Crust Ingredients:
• 1 cup whole hazelnuts (if they have skins on, heat at 350o for 8 minutes and rub in a clean dish towel to remove most of the skins)
• 1 cup all-purpose flour
• 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
• ½ teaspoon salt
• ½ cup chilled butter, cut into pieces
• Cold water

Filling Ingredients:
• ¾ cup brown sugar
• ¼ cup butter, softened
• 2 eggs
• 1/3 cup maple syrup
• 1 level tablespoon flour
• 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
• 1 pinch salt

Topping Ingredient:
• Dark chocolate

Pulse hazelnuts in food processor till small pieces, add flour, sugar, salt and pulse till coarse meal. Add butter to dry ingredients and pulse till a few pea-size pieces of butter remain. Add enough chilled water to hold dough together, about 3 tablespoons. Chill for 10 minutes. Divide dough in 12 equal pieces and pat into bottom and up sides of cupcake pan. Chill another 10 minutes. Blind-bake for 15 minutes till starting to colour, but not brown

While waiting for the crust to bake, combine filling ingredients together using a mixer or wooden spoon.
Fill each tart shell with filling mixture being careful to keep below the top of the sides. Bake for 16 minutes till crust is browned and edges of filling are coloured and set, but centre is still liquid. Cool.

Melt 80% dark chocolate and drizzle over the top.
Serve, and enjoy your locally inspired holiday treat!
