PB Tart

To make sure that I got exactly the dessert I wanted on my birthday, I made this PB Tart for myself. It’s like eating a huge Reeses’s Peanut Butter cup. It was my birthday gift to myself which I thoroughly enjoyed…especially because it’s a fact that calories consumed on your birthday don’t count.
