Chocolate, Pecan and Fig Tartlets

Chocolate, Pecan and Fig Tartlets

 


Ingredients

2 sheets puff pastry, thawed
1/3 cup dried small figs, chopped fine
1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate morsels
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1/3 cup granulated sugar


Preparation

1. Lightly butter two mini muffin pans (12 each). Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 425ºF.

2. Place one sheet of puff pastry on lightly floured surface and roll out to 12"x18". Using 3" biscuit cutter, cut out 12 rounds of puff pastry. Press into prepared muffin pan to form little tartlet shells. Repeat with remaining puff pastry. Place in freezer or refrigerator while preparing filling.

3. Combine chocolate, pecans and figs in medium bowl. In small bowl, combine egg, corn syrup, and sugar. Add egg mixture to chocolate mixture and stir to combine. Place a heaping tablespoon of fig mixture in center of each tartlet. Pour corn syrup mixture just to cover. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until set. Cool and dust with confectioners' sugar, if desired. It may be necessary to remove from molds using small paring knife.

I am getting married 1 week from tomorrow, but felt compelled to tell you about one of your employees. Ann. I have been e-mailing Ann for over 1 month and put a favor order together for my wedding. They arrived and I they looked just like the picture.The main reason I wanted to drop you a note was to commend Ann. From the very first e-mail until my chocolate was received her response time was just wonderful. I heard so many horror stories about dealing with an online company when you have no idea when they will contact you next. I never had any feeling of discomfort. Ann made me feel so at ease and comfortable the whole time...Ann was exceptional and in this day and age that is not common. Her customer service is beyond compared to others. - Fran"Thanks so much for the chocolates that were sent to my mom today!! She called me and said they were absolutely beautiful and VERY delicious!! :) I am very happy with my experience and would recommend your company to anyone. The customer service that you've provided is hard to come by - THANKS SO MUCH!! - Theresa B from
