  Categories: Pies, Chocolate
       Yield: 1 servings
  
            Premade pastry crust
            Filling:
     1/2 c  Salted butter
       6 oz Unsweetened baking chocolate
       2 lg Eggs
       1 c  Dark brown sugar
     1/2 c  Dark corn syrup
       2 ts Vanilla extract
   1 1/2 c  Chopped walnuts
            Topping:
      24    Walnut halves
     1/2 c  Heavy cream
     1/4 c  White sugar
       1 ts Almond extract
  
     Filling:  In saucepan combine butter and chocolate and
   stir over low heat.  Pour into bowl and let cool 5 minutes.
    Using an electric mixer, beat eggs into chocolate.  Add
   sugar, corn syrup and vanilla and blend until smooth.  Fold
   in walnuts.
     To assemble:  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Roll out
   dough on floured board to 1/8 inch thickness.  Cut dough in
   circles to fit 2 1/2 inch tartlet pans, cut a bit larger
   than pans are. Repeat with remaining dough.  Lay dough in
   pans and press firmly.  Fill pans 2/3 full of filling and
   place on baking sheet to catch any overspill.  Bake 30
   minutes or until filling is set.  While tartlets are still
   warm, place one walnut half in center of each.
     Topping:  In chilled bowl with chilled beaters, beat
   cream, sugar and almond extract, until stiff peaks form.
   Do not overbeat.  Put whipped topping in pastry bag and
   using a star tip, pipe decorative topping onto each
   tartlet.   THE DESSERT SHOW
