Many of you have complained about uneven or unsuccessful events at tart shells. I understand that sometimes, they are non-uniform, sometimes too crumbly and it doesn’t hold the cream or the mousse. But, we all get perfect after practicing and practicing and of course, not losing hope, haha.
These tart shells have an added advantage because they are super organic as they use organic sugar. Organic sugar also ensures that your blood sugar is absolutely controlled and you will not despise the extra calories in tart because there will hardly be any!

I have been following your blog & recipes and they have helped me a lot. Currently, I am trying to perfect my tart shells. For how long should I bake them and i shoul go for blind baking first or directly bake them. So far my shells are coming out a little too hard.
