TWD: French Lemon-Cream Tart


Possibly the most delicious lemony dessert I have ever made!!  The combination of the buttery crust, creamy filling, and tartness of the fresh lemons is pure excellence.  The pictures do not give it justice in the slightest (excuse the poor photos- bad lighting).  Looks like it's time to invest in a fluted tart pan, but my spring-form pan worked out just as well.  I also sugared some lemon slices for an extra sparkle!  


3/4 cup fresh lemon juice, from my mom's tree


Whisking Away!  
3/4 cup lemon juice
lemon zest
1 cup sugar
4 large eggs


Is it done yet?  
only 4 more hours to refrigerate...

Looks like your tart turned out very well!
Great thinking using the springform in place of the tart pan.... and lemons from your mom's own tree! Lucky you, must have been delicious!

Looks yummy! I had to use a springform pan too since I don't have a tart pan (yet!). I love the lemons on top!

The springform pan was a good idea. Looks wonderful!

Fun sparkly lemon slices! I like the idea of the springform pan for this. Like a lemon cheesecake of sorts.

The lemon slices add a nice touch to the tart. I think I will have to try this!

Pretty! Way to go.

I'm more excited than I should be about next week's marshmallows. I've got to find out if they're puppy-safe. I'm thinking it will be as funny as watching my Frenchie eat peanut butter times 100. :D
