METHOD

Prep: 20 minutes. Cook: 50 minutes.

  1. Preheat the oven to 200˚C.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pastry to line a 14x5” rectangular pastry tin, allowing the excess pastry to hang over the sides of the tin. Prick the base with a fork and freeze for 10 minutes.
  3. Whisk together the sugar, syrup, condensed milk, butter and vanilla. Pour into the pastry case then sprinkle over the pecans.
  4. Bake for 45-50 minutes until the filling is just set.
  5. Remove from the tin and leave to cool before cutting into 8 slices.

CHEF'S TIP

Try serving hot or cold with custard or crème fraîche. Although pecans are the traditional choice, you could use walnuts instead.
