Recipe for Tart De Moy:

History of the Recipe:
Tart De Moy is a classic French dessert that has been enjoyed for centuries. It originated in medieval France and was often made for special occasions or festive gatherings. The recipe has evolved over time, but the core ingredients and flavors have remained the same. The name "Tart De Moy" translates to "Midway Tart," suggesting that it was meant to be enjoyed in the middle of a meal or as a sweet treat to indulge in. This delectable dessert has stood the test of time and continues to be loved by dessert enthusiasts all over the world.

Fun Facts:
- Savoy biscuits, also known as ladyfingers, are a popular choice for this tart due to their light and airy texture. They are soaked in milk to soften and add moisture to the dessert.
- Fresh butter is a key ingredient that adds richness and enhances the flavor of the tart.
- The addition of citrus peels, such as orange, lemon, and citron, adds a refreshing and tangy twist to the tart.
- Whisking the egg whites and spreading them over the top of the tart just before it finishes baking creates a beautiful and fluffy meringue-like topping.

Ingredients:
- 3/4 pound of savoy biscuits (ladyfingers)
- 1 quart of milk
- 6 ounces of fresh butter
- 4 eggs
- 1 ounce of candid orange peel
- 1 ounce of lemon peel
- 1 ounce of citron
- White sugar, to taste

Instructions:
1. Preheat the oven to a quick oven temperature, around 375°F (190°C).
2. In a large bowl, soak the savoy biscuits in milk for a few minutes until they soften.
3. In another bowl, melt the fresh butter and let it cool slightly.
4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs until they are well beaten.

9. Place the tart dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 30-35 minutes, or until the tart is golden brown and set in the center.
10. While the tart is baking, whisk the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.
