I LOVE lemon tarts. My husband LOOOOOOOVES lemon tarts. When we were in Paris, we both “discovered” this amazing dessert (Tarts au Citron!) so ever since then, I have been constantly trying new recipes to make awesome tarts at home.
Most of the time, lemon tart is a great dessert in the summer – refreshing, not too sweet, and just the right kick of lemony sourness. But this time, in February, I had a hankering to make it for a friend’s dinner party. They are often great at being my guinea pigs for new recipes!
The result? it is delicious. Just so smooth and the right amount of lemony-ness. I just didn’t tell them how much butter went into it! (Ignorance is bliss for many dessert eaters!). Note that the original recipe actually uses Meyer Lemons. Which is this beautiful sweet kind of lemons. Well I couldn’t find any, so I used plain old yellow large lemons from the store. It works out just fine!
