Ah lemon. My husband was not excited that I was baking a lemon dessert again. But tough luck for him since this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was for the Tartest Lemon Tart. This tart is made with an sweet almond crust and a filling made from whole lemons. Not a bit of the lemons goes to waste, other than maybe the seeds.
In an attempt to reduce the bitterness, I blanched the lemon peels before blending them with the other ingredients to make the filling. The tart was easy to make with the most time consuming thing being the crust.
We haven’t tasted it just yet, but maybe I will sneak a piece tomorrow morning. Lemon Tart isn’t that far from a lemon danish. right?????
This week’s TWD recipe Tartest Lemon Tart was selected by Babette of Babette Feasts. She has the recipe posted on her blog here, so stop by and check it out.
