I was attracted to this recipe for a variety of reasons. First, it's a Joanne Weir recipe, which inherently means good. Then, the title indicated the use of three of my favorite ingredients. And finally, upon reading the full list of ingredients, I was especially intrigued by the pine nuts. Pine nuts in a dessert? Okay! Plus, I got to pull out my bottle of Kahlua, and you know how that goes. Once it's out for baking purposes, why not have a little on the rocks, too.
This recipe is very very easy. The pastry, made in a food processor, comes together quickly and does not require rolling out; you just press it into the tart pan. If I can nitpick for a moment, I did have to use three large-ish dishes for the filling: a double boiler, a saucepan, and a mixing bowl. Oh the horror!
