Neenish Tarts

No Comments Baking and Tarts / Pies

Neenish tarts are a (mostly) Australian tart which has a sweetened condensed milk filling and milk/white chocolate on top. They’re perfect for the equinox which is the half way point between the solstices where day (white) and night (dark/milk) are the same length. Sometimes they have a mock cream of gelatin based filling, but the sweetened condensed milk version in this recipe is easier to make.
