Caramelised pine nut tart

I made these tarts with some leftovers, but I have to say that I had a pleasant result. These tarts are made with pine nuts and a caramel mixture. From the quantity below you ll make about three 3" tarts. As I told you they were leftovers so only made three :)
The recipe for the pastry comes from Joy of Baking and its the one for Pate Brisee. Here's the link http://www.joyofbaking.com/PateBrisee.html
Caramelised Pine nut tart
2 tbl brown sugar
4 tbls golden syrup
2 tbl cream
2 tbl butter
1/2 cup pine nuts

Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl. Fill tart cases with filling and bake till caramelised.

What a delicious sounding combo! I might just eat the leftovers with a spoon. I love the idea of the nuttiness of the pine nuts mixed with the sweet depth of the caramel. Has the makings of a perfect tart!
