If you’ve never tried them, you’ll love the wonderfully dense flavor and delicate lightness to the dessert. Try them the next time you’re having a dinner party, as they’re a wonderful dessert to enjoy while people are having conversation.

A winter potluck dessert favorite, this recipe is also great for when you feel like cooking or baking to help de-stress. We’ve been known to have a slice of this by the fire ourselves.

We love to use in-season fruits for this recipe, especially the lemons and apples that are in season now. A skinned and seeded Meyer lemon combined with a Bramley apple is perfect in this tart. Plus, the recipe is basic enough that you can make some healthy substitutions, if you desire!
