Sweet Sunday: Lemon Tart

Oh dear. My mouth has filled with saliva and I've only just begun writing this -- a true testament to how much I adore the tangy taste of lemon tart.

It's the perfect way to end a rich meal: the lemon filling and light pastry base cleanses your palate, leaving you wanting even more. I have been known to buy a pie-sized tart, pick it up, and demolish it bite by bite (although I probably shouldn't be so eager to share that).

It's the kind of thing that's so good you take another bite before you've even finished chewing the one in your mouth!

Lemon tart, I love you!

  17. Did you bake that pie yourself? It looks so perfect. My pies are always wonky.

  18. Sigh. Makes the piece of dry chocolate brownie I had for pudding seem oh so inadequate.
