    LovesSweets's Note:

    I have tried plenty of lemon tarts and this one is the absolute best. I like my tart's "tart" so this one definitely has some kick. The pastry is also a favourite and I use it for all sorts of pie recipes.

      Prick all over with a fork, line with foil, then fill with dried beans or pie weights.
    7. 7
      Bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees, remove paper and beans, prick if puffed and bake 5 minutes longer or until lightly golden. Do not overbake. Remove from oven.

      My 10 year daughter made this recipe almost all by herself and it turned out delicious!!! As good as many bakeries in our area! Only substitution we made was making with 4 lemons instead of 3 lemons and 2 limes ( we had no limes at home). Fabulous recipe!!!!

      This is definitely a tart lemon tart, but I liked it!!! I made it for company who cancelled at the last minute, but that is ok, I am having no issue eating it up! Nice clear directions, many thanks!

      Absolutely fantastic lemon tart. I followed the recipe exactly except for having to add an extra couple of tablespoons of iced water to the pastry. Everyone went back for seconds and raved about it - thanks for posting your excellent recipe!
