So anyways- it is really yummy. And I will just have to keep making it until it is as delightful as the original.
*Note: okay... so I did some research looking up other pictures and recipes online and it is indeed supposed to be gooey in the middle (like I remember). I am not sure why mine always turns out more like a cookie. I will do some experimenting and get back to you. But in the meantime- give this a try. It is still mighty tasty.

I made little tart size for our family's monthly birthday celebration. What says Happy Birthday more than a sparkler in a tart?
