"mmmm nice change"
"Very easy! Every time I make this my guests just rave about it. The crust is perfect and cardamom is a nice change of pace. I usually pop it back in the oven for a couple minutes after spreading with the jam. It caramelizes and looks prettier, I think."
"This tart is very easy to make and delicious when eaten. My family loves it and we will be making it many more times."
"We loved this so much last Fall I looked and looked and looked for the issue it was in and then realized all I had to do was go to the website! This tart screams Fall and being a WI transplant in the SF Bay area it brings a feeling of Fall I have missed the last several years. It's delicious!"
"This is a great crust, very flaky. I had trouble with the crust leaking the cinnamon mixture was mostly on the parchment surrounding the tart. Any suggestions?"
