Beautiful and sophisticated looking, this tart looks like it came from a bakery. Despite looking difficult to make, it is perfectly easy enough to make from the comfort of one’s own kitchen. To prepare this tart, one basically fits a pie crust into a tart pan and partially blind bakes it. The caramel filling contains only six ingredients that get blended together before being poured into the pie crust. From there, it’s a simple matter of baking the tart until it has almost set. After cooling, the tart can be served with a sprinkling of powdered sugar on top or even some whipped cream. It is truly that easy!
This dessert can be made ahead of time- just prepare the tart and store it in the refrigerator until it is time to serve. During the holidays, a lot of food dishes require a lot of time and prep, so having an easy dessert that can be made ahead of time can be quite helpful.
