My grandmother use to make a "tarte au sucre" for every family gathering. The kids would be wired all day, lol. I have been looking for a recipe that turns out like hers for a long time now. I have tried a few, all delicious, but not quite the same. A few weeks ago, my Mom was looking through a box of stuff left behind after my grandma passed away a while back and , there it was....... Her recipe for tarte au sucre. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I do. You might want to have a glass of milk with you when you do eat it, it is extremely sweet!

Wow, just like my mom and grandma used to make! This one sure took me back! Exactly how I remembered. I was a little worried the middle wouldn't set, but it turned out just fine after I refrigerated it. A definite keeper! [Made for 1-2-3 Hits]
