Recipe by Heartspell

This tart is based on a classic southern pie, oozes with gooey custard and has a simple cookie-crumb crust. Modified this from a recipe from Martha Stewart Living Magazine. Tried making it as low-carb/low sugar friendly as possible, the family loved it! I'm thinking pecan crust next time...mmmmmmmm an upside down pecan pie! Let me know what you think.

Refrigerate until cooled, at least 2 hours or overnight.
