Walnut Tart

Meet the Cook: The first time my husband tried this, he said there ought to be a law against anything tasting so good! I've served it at picnics and family occasions...and even once at a bridal shower. It's fine either as a dessert or for breakfast. We are the parents of three grown children and grandparents of two. -Rovena Wallace, Trafford, Pennsylvania
