We had a new person start in our department and hailed from England where their favorite dessert was a Gypsy Tart. Not knowing much about it, I tried to Google it and out came 3 ingredients. Someone in our group tried to make it and failed horribly but here is the correct recipe to make this extremely sweet tart.

Hope this works for you. Remember to really get the evaporated milk really cold. This part is crucial and will set the foundation of the tart. If not, prepare for a soupy mess like we did the first time.
