Normally, the idea of making a tart kind of makes me shiver.
If it possibly requires a candy thermometer, babysitting chocolate, or executing any smidgen of finesse, I am so screwed.
But this tart is INCREEEEDDDIBLY easy. Like, I could do it in my sleep fourteen times in a row and nail it every time. Easy.Peasy, peeps.
Just a forewarning, though: since I don’t have an official double-boiler, I made the silly mistake of using a plastic Tupperware bowl on top of a pot of simmering water. Note to you: don’t do this. If you’d like a funny visual, imagine me smashing the pot against the ground outside, shouting “DIE DIE DIE” as I desperately tried to chisel away the plastic now molded to the opening of my favorite pot ever.
I was prying knives in the small crack, I was beating the hell out of the bowl, I was running it under hot water, cold water, freezing it, voodooing it, putting a stick of dynamite in it.. anything to remove that blasted bowl before my mom could notice my mistake and yell at me for ruining her Tupperware. But, as moms usually know since they have superpowers, she sensed something was amiss with her precious Tupperware and noticed my new kitchen gadget of plastic-bowl-stuck-in-metal-pot.
SOOOOO, unless you want your mom like, STEAMING mad at you for wrecking two dishes in one stupid boil, maybe *don’t* use plastic on metal. I mean, I bet you’re thinking well DUH but honestly, my mind was so consumed by the idea of making this sinful tart that logical things floated away like dust motes in the wind.
Anywhoooo, I originally shared this pie over at my friend Lisa’s blog, Sweet 2 Eat Baking, about a month ago. And I couldn’t neglect you guys from this lusciousness, so here it is!
