Part of what makes this tart so easy to make is the inclusion of Primula’s ‘Original Cheese’ cream cheese. You might know Primula best from their famous cheese tubes (available in six different flavours), but they also make dips and spreads. The folks at Primula make the good stuff: gluten free, no artificial flavours, colours, or preservatives, and suitable for mums to be.
PS – And did you know Primula’s profits go to charity? Primula is owned by Kavli Trust, a UK charitable organisation that donates thousands of pounds to good causes each year. How often do you get to eat good food and make a difference in the world? Not often enough, I’d say.
Thanks to Primula Cheese for sponsoring this post.
