    I have just tried this recipe and although they didn't look as good as the picture above they were absolutely delicious and so easy to make. The pastry was also so delicious will definitely make these again!!  -  26 Jun 2013


    This tart was delicious but came out tasting Caramel rather than custard. Not too sweet and not over powering. the pastry came out perfect and was enjoyed by all.  -  08 Mar 2012
