Cranberry walnut tart

(hopefully you won’t leave your tart unattended like I did, letting the top burn a bit. But who doesn’t love a bit of burnt sugar?).

Cranberry walnut torte is my favorite so I was excited to try a tart version. Simply delicious.

The crust recipe was found here.

Also- did you know that it is -8 deegrees here today? It is the worst. And a fantastic excuse to cancel my plans, stay in my sweats and start some valentines projects with the kids. Stay warm!
