  1. Mu husband and I loved this tart. I made it for a light Sunday night supper and enjoyed every bite. Will certainly put this into the “favourites” file.

  2. Why do you need 2 sheets of pastry? do you place one on top of the other or do you need two sheets to cover the entire base?

    • Hi Lou, the 2 sheets of pastry are necessary as the tin is larger than one sheet of pastry so you will need to use one to fill in the gaps and also the edges of the tin. Does that make sense?
