    From Australian Good Food, they promise it has all the flavour of a regular kilojoule laden tart but lightened up. Have not included chill or cooling time.

      Deeelicious! It has just the right amount of tartness and not overly sweet. I did have to add just a wee bit more water to the crust. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag Game. :)
