For the Dough Mix the almond paste, Vanilla bean seeds and butter together until smooth, cut in the flour and salt and knead until smooth. Wrap in plastic and chill.

Note: This dough can be used for any pie or tart, and can be made in advance and kept in the freezer for up to a month. For the Filling Lightly toast the walnuts in the oven in advance and reserve. In a high sided pot combine the sugar, salt, corn syrup and water and bring to a boil. Keep a close eye on it. Meanwhile, in another pot heat up the cream. When the caramel is dark and is beginning to smoke slightly, carefully add the cream while slowly whisking. Bring the mixture to a boil, add the toasted nuts and pour out into a container. Allow the mixture to cool. Assembly Preheat the oven to 375F Conventional/ 350 F convection. Fill the dough lined tart shell with the filling, cover with the second sheet of dough.

Bake at 375F Conventional/ 350 F convection for approximately 30 minutes until the crust is deep golden brown. Allow to cool overnight. Serve with a dollop of crème fraiche or unsweetened whipped cream.
