TWD: The Most Extraordinary French Lemon Cream Tart
I'm still playing catchup with the Tuesday's with Dorie recipes. I guess it's my perfectionist side showing... thinking I *must* complete all of the recipes to date. Or maybe I just want to make sure I haven't been left out of any lip-smacking deliciousness. Who knows.
Anyway, I made The Most Extraordinary French Lemon Cream Tart some time ago. It was really a gorgeous lemon filling... buttery yellow and so smooth. I loved the flavor all the way up until the end, when butter is whizzed into the filling in the blender. The finished filling was still good, don't get me wrong, I just thought the butter diluted the sweet tangy lemon flavor a bit. I would still gladly serve this to guests.
(I could not get a good picture of this tart for the life of me... the filling was more yellow than this.)
OK, over and out! If you'd like to peek at the recipe, check out Dorie Greenspan's book "Baking: From my Home to Yours", or you can find it on Laurie's site here.
