A great dessert but most certainly wasn’t a quick dessert. If you’re up for the challenge then it’s perfect for you.
Home made dough of any sort will always taste better than the pastry you buy at the supermarket but be prepared to have some free hours to make and prep. It also takes some time to have the custard set so it easily turns into a whole day event to make this beauty of a dessert.
These tarts were delicious but you need to ensure you have the time to finish them or there could be a late night visit to the bakery.
Eat it or Starve!?? Yes, definitely eat it but you could starve waiting for it to be made!
