Tuesdays With Dorie – Tartest Lemon Tart

by Jessica on May 12, 2009

I love it when friends show up on TWD Tuesdays. 🙂 Dinner is a breeze and dessert is always a no-brainer. Thumbs up for that.

Lemon Tart Crust

Dorie’s ‘Tartest Lemon Tart’ threw me for bit, though. After reading through the recipe, I was shocked to find out I’d be using the entire lemon… peel, pith and all (minus the seeds, of course). Maybe it’s because I’ve never had a lemon tart (blasphemy!), but it sounded a little weird. I forged ahead (with Dorie’s fabulous guidance) and quickly tired of slicing lemons. 😉 In the end, it was all good. The tart was beautiful, the guests were uber-satisfied and I ate every single leftover crumb of the sweet tart crust. If you’ve never tried it, I beg you to try it now. That sweet tart crust is made of awesome. Just sayin’.

Mine bubbled over like a volcano, but it turned out fine after some doctoring 🙂 A little bitter, but I don’t think my lemons were of the best quality. DELICIOUS dough!

c’est pas courant de faire une tarte au citron avec des citrons entiers, mais qu’est ce que c’est bon !
ta tarte est superbe 🙂

Your fluted edges look so pretty, and the blueberries seem like a perfect accompaniment.

Oh, those blueberries just send that slice of tart over the top…why didn’t I think of that…and they look so pretty also. Your tart looks wonderful, and very elegant. Love the dish!

The blueberries look so wonderful with the tart and the whipped cream!! Fantastic.

Your tart looks fantastic! I was worried about using the whole lemon and apparently for good reason, as my tart ended up very bitter. Glad yours was more successful 🙂
