TWD Tartest Lemon Tart

Blending lemons, rind and all to make a filling. I was a little skeptical on how this would taste. Then I thought about Shaker Lemon Pie. You thinly slice lemons and mix with a lot of sugar to make a delicious pie. Maybe I might like this. I used the Sweet Tart Dough with Nuts just as the recipe called for. I love this crust. It is so easy to make and it is really delicious. The lemons and sugar blended together to make a nice velvety mixture. The rest of the tart was very easy to make.

I had to bake the tart about 10 minutes longer than the recipe call for. It baked to a beautiful golden color. I let the tart chill over night before cutting it. The verdict-I really liked this tart. It has a very nice lemon flavor that was quite tart. It did have a very slight bitter taste but I think that was because of my less than perfect lemons. The next time I make this I will be careful to choose the very best lemons I can find.

This weeks recipe was chosen by Babette of Babette Feasts, as usual you can get the recipe over at the website.
