My aunt passed this recipe on to my mother, who then shared it with me. Both of them are excellent cooks, so I knew it had to be a winner. I wasn't disappointed! The rich tart is wonderful as a holiday dessert.

"I carried this to church for Homecoming and got rave reviews. All that was left were crumbs. I baked the crust 14 min. and the tart for 35 min. It was a beautiful dish. Everyone wanted the recipe. Will make again."
