    **Tinkerbell**'s Note:

    The original version of this tart recipe is printed in the Children's World Cookbook but the instructions asked for an ingredient not listed in the ingredient list so I have had to combine my own tart making experience with this recipe & this is the result. :) Prep time includes refrigerator time so actual prep may be less than posted. Posted for ZWT-5.

      Excellent recipe Tink. We really enjoyed this tasty treat. I did use pre-made tart shells because I couldn't find my large tart pan. This recipe is easy to make with outstanding results. It was sweet, tart and subtly spiced my dh was in taste heaven. Thank you very much for sharing your recipe. :)
