I'm not going to lie, I made a few mistakes with this... but it still turned out delicious! I made this tart for a dinner party I held last night, and everyone loved it. My mistakes? I accidentally doubled the amount of butter in the filling... adding 16 tablespoons and not 8... and I also over-browned my crust, causing it to crack. No matter, it still turned out pretty and delicious! This is definitely a recipe to come back to time and again. The original recipe if from The Baker Chick, but of course I tweaked it to make it my own.
