    I'mPat's Note:

    This is one of hubbies favourite desserts. Been making it now for 28 years. I usually make my own pastry shell with 1/2 measurement of Shortcrust Pastry. Have not included time for OPTIONAL EXTRA or baking of pastry shell. The pastry shells can be found in the freezer section or you can also buy small individual ones to use, though I find the premade (raw) to be very sweet. Thanking Evelyn/Athens who picked up an error in the original recipe with the flour - the original recipe said 2 to 3 tablespoons so I have changed it to 3 tablespoons from the 5 I had originally submitted.

      My husband went nuts over this recipe. I made it with dark brown sugar, which I think really added flavour and used a home made pie crust. I served it with whipped cream and it disappeared very quickly. Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #50

      While I'm not much of a sweet tooth, I do have a soft spot for caramel tart. I enjoyed this very much and found Pat's not overly sweet homemade pastry and good thick, unsweetened cream balanced it out perfectly.

      I was prepared for the sweetness as Chef Potts warns us, so I cut the sugar back to 3/4 cup. I think it could easily be cut even more - to 1/2 cup (or more) for this amount. However, it was just much too thick and pasty, and despite cooking as stated, the floury/pasty taste was always there.
