I bake this recipe form the Once Upon A Tart 2003 cookbook often, and people love it. Unfortunately it surface never looks like the photo in the book, where the tarts have a brownish surface, almost like a brulee. My tarts come out perfectly smooth and light yellow and almost always crack when they cool. I'd like to have the surface shown in the book and avoid cracking. Any suggestions? arrosenthal
