“The following recipe is from my friend and former neighbor Jenny Fisher who got it from her mother-in-law. Jenny brought it to a pot luck last summer and somehow I managed to get this photo of the last slice in the tart pan. It is amazingly good and, Jenny says, very easy to make.)” – Anne Quinn Corr
