It was alright. I only added one onion when it called for 3. Still everyone who tasted it said it would have been delicious without the onion.

I really enjoyed this tart, I served it at a brunch and everyone seemed to like it. Yes, I will make it again.

Has a very interesting flavor. Everyone loved it. I substituted puff pastry for the pie crust and it worked well.

This was one of the biggest wastes of expensive fig jam I've ever seen. Truly horrible flavor-I just threw away the entire pie. Save your money.
