Let's just say that when I brought this to the table, it was christened a 'suet cake look alike'...it sure won't be a do-over! The taste was not awful...just a bit odd looking! I used one half an apple and one half a pear, maybe I didn't dice them small enough but followed the rest of the recipe as written.

Oh you have done it this time. I adore the filling but the crust is one of my all time favorites. Truly I have never seen vanilla wafers as a base for a crust. Now I have tried using them and adding the Hazlenuts - oh my goodness! I see this as a base for future experamentation on other tart fillings. Thank you for a truly impressive addition to my Recipe Box!.
