Salted Caramel Tart Recipe

A decedent salted caramel tart recipe for the finest occasions.  Salted caramel has become increasingly popular this century, the addition of the salt seems to bring out the caramel flavour and offset the sweetness beautifully.

We like to use Halen mon’s vanilla salt when baking especially on our salted caramel tart recipe.

The pastry cases for this salted caramel tart recipe are made using our pastry recipe for Pasta Frolla.
