I have a question about the recipe "Alice Medrich's Labneh (Lebni, Labni) Tart" from Nicholas Day. How long does this tart last?

Well, it's a cheesecake.
And they last about a week in the fridge.
Thanks! :) I was wondering if the crust got soggier than the crust of a standard cheesecake.
Maybe yes, now that you mention it, had similar (soggy) experience with another cake/pie.
If you need to prep in advance, maybe bake the crust, prepare the filling, and hold separately.
Another way to get a crispier longer crust, if you know you have to hold it for a few days, is to make an upside-down pie. Bake as a custard with a crust on top.
Last strategy, bake and freeze, then defrost just before serving.
Thanks so much, Nancy! Really appreciate it.
