    This is probably my all time favorite recipe. It is extremely decadent and rich. A bit time consuming but it's worth it!! Adapted from Gourmet. Please use your favorite dough recipe or a prepared crust!

      This tart is so flavorful,and should be on a Thanksgiving table as a side dish.Perfect. I made no changes. As a cook, I found it easy to make.

      This certainly is different, but I loved it. I used a red onion which was a medium size and used some chopped basil and marjoram. It has a different texture from normal tarts and the sweet of the squash goes really well with the saltiness of the cheeses. Well done
