This Tarta De Tres Nueces is a traditional dessert from Nicaragua. The pastry is brushed with chocolate and topped with a honey and nut filling.
Preheat oven to 350* F. Roll out pastry and pre-bake tart shell for 10-15 minutes until light golden brown.
Remove tart shell from oven. Let cool slightly. Melt chocolate in a double boiler. Paint the bottom of the shell with a thin layer of the melted chocolate. Save any extra for drizzling.
Let it boil 3 to 4 minutes, then stir in the nuts, zest and vanilla.
Pour into tart shell and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees F.
