Butterscotch Tart with Curry Shortbread Crust

Serves 8-10
by Tenina Holder

Curried shortbread?  YES, a perfect little foil for the creamy butterscotch-y-ness of the filling. Don't be afraid...you will love it!  

This recipe appears in the Cooking with Tenina cookbook, of which I have all remaining copies, not many at that. Go get your copy ASAP so you don’t miss out. We did this recipe in cooking classes (don’t ask me which ones) but it was a huge it always. SO get your curry on and you will be sending me emails! Pretty sure.
