This rich dessert is my own creation, and I'm very proud of it. It's easy enough to make for every day but special enough to serve guests or take to a potluck. —Kathy Specht, Clinton, Montana

Kathy here! Just a heads up that I DID NOT put the foil in my recipe. I guess the editors thought it was required, but I did not! So sorry about that !!!

Thank goodness for the foil warning! I hope you don't use a microwave, any electronic devices, a cell phone, flourescent lights, or breathe the air.

Tart was wonderful.

I baked the crust on baking sheet. Cut it in pieces and put it in miniature dessert dishes. Poured the mixture on top. Topped with whipped cream. Everyone did think it was a fancy dish.
