“This will make six 4-1/2-inch tarts, you can double the recipe if desired but make two separate pasty and filling recipes, do not double the recipe into one, or it can be made in a 9-inch tart pan fitted with the pastry crust. This makes a great dessert to a holiday dinner! If desired you can omit the bourbon.”
