TWD: Tartest Lemon Tart


I made this week's lemon tart and man, the name is totally appropriate. You use the entire lemon (minus seeds) for the recipe. This was one tart tart! I've noticed that citrus things have tasted extra tart during my pregnancy so this was too tart for me. (Something that's never happened to me before.) But, I took the tart with me to Mother's Day dinner and it got eaten, burnt edges and all.


The recipe called for use of a fluted tart pan with removable bottom and mine doesn't have a removable bottom so I used my springform. I spread the crust too thin by pushing it too far up the sides and it got really burned. My sweet MIL claimed she liked things burnt. She is so good to me!
Head over to TWD and see how all the other bakers fared. Hope all the moms and moms-to-be had a great day on Sunday! I'll see you all next week with mango bread. Sounds fun!

I made my tart in a springform pan as well. Yours looks great! My tart wound up way too bitter for me so I know exactly what you mean.

Glad to see you back blogging again! And glad your family liked the tart even if it didn't suit your taste buds.

Sounds like you have a great mother-in-law! :) At least your family gobbled it up even if you thought that it was too tart. It looks great!

OH I'm sorry your crust burned and that the tart was too much for your taste. I can understand how it would be though - it was definitely a strong flavor. Your MIL sounds super sweet though! :)

Welcome back to the blog. Glad it was good despite being 'darkish' (Bab's newest word!!)
