Recipe Comments & Reviews

My tarts came out very mushy and almost liquid, even after I turned up the heat to 365. Tasty mush though
Each year I make it I receive raves. Sweet with the tartness from gingersnaps
Easy to make and very good..the second time I made these I cut back on the butter in the gingersnaps to 1 Tbsp.
