      I made this tart as one of my dessert offerings as an end to Christmas dinner and it was a delight. As Evelyn states, it is a sophisticated tart- the adults loved it, the children wouldn't eat it. I chose to use a standard "pie crust" type crust rather than a pate brisee, and chose not to pre-bake the crust. I was glad that I trusted my judgement because it would have been overdone if I had pre-baked because of the natural difference in thickness between the two. The cinnamon whipped cream was a lovely finishing touch. Thank you Evelyn for sharing the recipe.
