Cheats Yorkshire Curd Tart

Cheats Yorkshire Curd Tart

Posted 2016-04-17 by Bastion Harrisonfollow


Originating from Yorkshire, this tart is traditionally made from the fresh curd from milk. It is, however, very difficult to buy from the shops these days, and although you can make your own, I find using cream cheese as a substitute a good cheat that saves the hassle.

Curd tart is essentially a baked cheesecake in pastry, and this version has a lovely light texture like that of lemon mousse.
