I love being able to whip up a dessert at the last moment. It’s one of those skills that people are in awe of. But if you follow me on the regular, you know this is one of the things I am always trying to teach. When you keep a few items in your pantry, fridge or freezer, you are always ready.
This tart is one of those recipes. You can easily adapt it with whatever fruit and jam you have on hand or is seasonal. What are some things that you keep on hand for last minute guests?
