My son Benjamin inspired me (i.e. he actually got me to stay up way past midnight baking) to make this golden pastry tart, filled with decadent brownie middle, and capped with yet more buttery pastry. This is an outstanding treat; great warm or cold, with ice-cream or hot caramel sauce or whipped cream or eaten in a chilled, thick wedge, out-of-hand. It’s the combination of pastry with a dense chocolate filling that makes it so captivating. Of course, taste (inner beauty) is one thing but great looks don't hurt. It makes something new of two classic elements and while it has French roots, it is decidedly, emphatically, spunkily Canuck (or maybe it's the third son of a third child boldness) in spirit. I named this recipe Guys and Dolls Brownie Pie in honor of the show my son was recently involved in; he's 16 and played in the pit band for the show; I was a dancer in the same show, many years prior. With both that musical and a love of inventive baking in common, Guys and Dolls seem like the perfect name. (This pie is now long gone; it left this morning on the 8 am school bus and by now, crumbs of it litter the hallways of a certain high school).
