My grandma used to make these for special occasions. I always asked her to make them for no reason but she said no. My dad said it's because she would always get frustrated with the dough and she hates to swear. I have no such issue and always remember to use lots of flour when rolling out the dough and have lots of wine available. It is so worth it when they are done. Fantastic tart.
