  • . >> Topping:
  • . 1/4 cup (60g) unsalted butter
  • . 1/3 cup Maple syrup (or mild honey)
  • . 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • . 1 cup Pecan halves
  • . 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • . 1/4 cup shredded coconut (optional garnish)


  1. . Pre-heat the oven to 400F. Position the rack in the center of the oven. Line a 9 inch (or 8x11inch) baking dish with aluminium foil going up the sides. Grease it with a little vegetable oil.
  2. . PASTRY CRUST BASE: In a very small bowl, whisk the egg yolk, water, oil and the extracts. Set aside. In a food processor, place all the other DRY ingredients excluding the butter. Pulse a few times before adding the chilled, cubed butter through the spout. Pulse a few more times until the mix looks crumbly. Keep the food processor on while pouring the egg yolk mixture through the spout. Run the machine only until the dough comes together and off the sides. Press the dough evenly throughout the bottom of the greased dish. Dock it with a fork. BAKE it for 12 minutes.
  3. . Meanwhile, MAKE TOPPING: In a small saucepan, melt the butter, syrup and salt on LOW-MED heat. After a few minutes, remove the liquid from the heat and stir in the nuts until completely coated. Add this topping evenly over the base crust.
  4. . BAKE another 10 minutes. Let it cool for at least 2 hours before lifting out the foil in order to cut the 16 pieces.
  5. . Store in an airtight container for a week at most or freeze within parchment paper.
  6. . Flavourful wishes from Claudia's
