Date Custard Tart with Cookie Crust
This is an easy Date Custard Tart with a cookie crust because I know there are people out there that do not like making pastry. Yep, I know that, but it doesn’t make me loving pastry making any less. I find it hard to believe but I am willing to provide a recipe that by-passes the pastry bit. Just because I love you. This is based on the iconic date tart by Lorraine Godsmark
It is THE most luxurious, creamy delicious tart you could ever imagine. There is a good reason that it has been a top seller for both Lorraine and Rockpool Restaurant in Sydney for the past 20 years. It really will make you weak at the knees. Cook it gently and take it out of the oven before it sets firm. This can be made with gluten free rice cookies too.
