Honey-Pecan Tart with Bittersweet Chocolate Drizzle

Photo: Andrew Purcell; Styling: Lydia Degaris Pursell  

Traditional pecan pie gets a delicious flavor update, with honey's sweet-tangy touch countered by bittersweet chocolate. If you'd like a more casual pie, you can make this in a 9-inch pie plate; you'll probably need to bake the filling an additional 3 to 5 minutes.
