A Pecan Tart With an Easy Flaky Crust

For Thanksgiving I made a pecan tart with a foolproof crust recipe from America’s Test Kitchen.  It seriously is foolproof and the best crust ever.  The secret is that it uses vodka.  We had some Seagram’s Sweet Tea vodka left from a summer backyard party, and that was the perfect thing for a pecan tart.

We discovered the French tart while traveling in France, and used the pastry technique for an American pecan tart when we got back home. We researched the science and techniques behind the recipe and used tips from exceptional chefs. Then we used the best ingredients we could find to create this recipe.
