The Verdict

The treacle filling was rich and sweet but not too sickly.

The pastry case had a lovely creamy texture and the flavour of the ground almonds faintly cut through. I dislike almonds immensely but the taste wasn’t so overpowering as to spoil the tart for me.

Overall the tarts were a success, they were surprisingly filling and we all agreed that none of us could have managed a second one. My six year old daughter especially liked the pastry.
