Wild Mushroom Tart by: High Heels to Hot Wheels

When we were in Rosemary Beach, I experienced a little piece of Heaven at Onano Neighborhood Cafe that came in the form of the most delectable mushroom tart.  Those of you who know me know that I tend to be prone to a little food guilt when it comes to eating something that is most likely loaded down with butter and fattening cheeses, especially when I have to get in a bathing suit on vacation, but in the case of this palette-pleasing pastry there was no guilt; only a born obsession to recreate it at home, so that I could have it again and again and again and again!  Since then, I have made several runs at it, and they all came up a close third or fourth, but last night I finally got the close second.  Luckily for me we had a house full of people and it was eaten up immediately, so I knew I had achieved success, but not before I got my own little piece of bliss!!
