Treacle Tart

Rated as 4.6 out of 5 Stars

"Any Harry Potter fan knows what this is. I finally procured the recipe from an British friend of mine. I know I can now find 'Lyle's Golden Syrup' in the grocery store along with the pancake syrups. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream."

I used milk instead of heavy cream, and found I needed to double everything for the filling in my 9 inch pan. Used the no roll pie crust recipe from this site, which was perfect - it's not sweet...
