I opened my account just to rate this recipe. It was wonderful! My guests are raving about it. The only thing I did differently was to cook the onion and garlic together. I also double the garlic. I used dried herbs and it was wonderful.

Very tasty. I used extra garlic, as is typical for me and lots and lots of fresh chives. I misread the instructions and did step 2 wrong, but it seems the tart came out ok.
