    bluemoon downunder's Note:

    A Kraft tart which I’ve so substantially adapted that I’ve pretty much de-Krafted it, but I have left in the Philadelphia cheese as an echo of its culinary ancestry. If you haven’t used leek, onion and garlic together, they offer a subtle blend of flavours when combined. If time isn’t a factor and you want to make a healthier crust, you could try a rice crust either from my Butternut Pumpkin Pie With a Brown Rice Crust or my Leek and Spinach Tart With Rice Crust. Some conversions: 220g = 7oz; 100g = 31/2 oz; 210g = approximately 61/2 oz.
