Marmalade tart with rosemary crust

Marmalade tart with rosemary crustLast week Joni asked me to bake a cake for his work so he could celebrate our wedding with his colleagues.  As soon as he asked I thought ‘great’! I can use up at least one jar of marmalade that we got in the house (for some reason people think that Joni LOOOOOAAAVES marmalade so we ended up with 5 whole jars!). Don’t get me wrong, I don’t really like marmalade and Joni just likes it. If he loved marmalade that much I suppose we would have one jar of it or two at the max in the house. Luckily one jar of marmalade went straight to the bin (I think it was off as the texture was all sugary/candy like) and another has been used up to bake this tart. So if you are ok with your maths, we now have only three jars of marmalade…. wooohoo!!!!

Ok, I am very sorry to be so negative about the marmalade. After all it makes great tarts! And if you unlike me and like marmalade, then this tart is for you. It’s tastefully combined with rosemary flavour, therefore making it an amazing afternoon treat! How do I know that? Well… although I did not taste it (even if I wanted to have a one slice to see how my experiment turned out), apparently Joni’s colleagues really liked it and wanted more… All I can say ‘Success!!!’
