We rated Pie #38 Peach Apricot Jam Tart on a scale of 1 - 5:
 
Taste - 4.25
Crust - 4.00
Appearance - 4.50
Overall - 4.25
 
The recipe called for almond meal (which we didn't have) so we used additional flour instead. This could have made the difference in the bottom crust being a little tough or maybe we simply baked it too long. We enjoyed it anyway and will make it again. . .with almond meal!
