The pale, shivery egg custard had no density to it ― it was like a panna cotta, or a foam ― and the crust shattered into translucent, tissue-thin sheets. (Turns out the process involves folding two doughs together to form these layers.) I found myself focusing more and more tightly on the tart, unwilling to even pull it away from my mouth.
