RECIPE FOR HONEY PISTACHIO TART
Title:Honey Pistachio Tart
Category:Hanukkah
Honey Pistachio Tart

Serve this with full-flavored coffee or hot mint tea.

Filling
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 cups chopped pistachio nuts, toasted
1/2 cup mixed dried fruit bits
1/4 cup orange juice

Egg Pastry
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup vegetable shortening
1 egg
1/4 cup cold water
1 beaten egg yolk
Coarse sugar

For filling, in a medium saucepan stir together sugar, honey, and 1/4 cup water. Bring to boiling, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Reduce heat to medium-low. Gently simmer, uncovered, 15 minutes or until a light caramel color, stirring occasionally. Stir in pistachios, fruit, and orange juice. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until mixture is slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Set aside.

For egg pastry, in a large mixing bowl combine flour and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture is the size of small peas. In a small bowl beat together egg and the 1/4 cup cold water. Add egg mixture to flour mixture. Using a fork, toss until dry ingredients are moistened. Divide dough in half. Form each half into a ball.

Slightly flatten one ball of egg pastry into a rectangle. On a lightly floured surface roll dough into a 16 x 6-inch rectangle. Wrap around a rolling pin. Unroll onto a 13 1/2 x 4-inch oblong tart pan with a removable bottom. Ease pastry into pan, pressing it up the fluted sides. Trim pastry even with top edge of pan. Spoon filling evenly into crust.

For top pastry, roll out remaining pastry ball into a 10-inch square. Using a fluted pastry wheel, cut into 1/2-inch-wide strips. Weave strips diagonally across top of filling for a lattice. Press ends into rim of pan. Brush egg yolk over lattice top and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake at 375 degrees F for about 35 minutes or until top is golden. (If parts of crust brown more quickly, cover with foil.) Cool in pan on a wire rack. Remove sides from pan.

Makes 8 to 12 servings.
