    I love when people get excited about halloween – it gets me more excited. This tart is adorable. And I've been very tempted to try the pumpkin chocolate combo in cake. Now I know I works.

    Like you my list goes on forever but it has lots of pumpkin and lots of spices on it. Oh and tons of apples and pears. I really could go on.

    That tart is super cute. And i bet it tastes great too. My favorite holiday recipe is my dad's traditional pumpkin pie. Sometimes you just gotta have the original!

    This tart is so cute Tessa – absolutely perfect for Halloween! I have that pies and tarts book from MS too, but somehow I'd miss this one.

    I actually just made this today but did some of my own substitutions. Did the crust dough feel extremely wet and pliable to you? I had to use so much extra flour just so it wouldn't stick to my hands. It still turned out delicious, but whenever I use my traditional tart dough, it's never that melty!

      When I made the crust it was just really sticky. I ended up not worrying about rolling a perfect circle as I found it was easier to just fill in cracks/holes with leftover crust. What is your traditional tart dough? Would love to see the recipe!

    If the caloric and fat content is correct, one piece of this tart would be the equivalent of normal total dietary intake for one and a half days!

    I will try this adorable recipe. 1 question: Paragragh 2 of MAKE THE CRUST: It says: “Preheat oven 350….“ but then you say to put the dough in the fridge…..When do I use the 350 degree oven? Before I refrigerate or after???
