    Dreamer in Ontario's Note:

    This is an easy to make and delicious pie based on the traditional French Tart Au Citron with only a fraction of the fat and calories. Prepare it in a flan or quiche pan if you have one. The recipe is from Anne Lindsay's New Light Cooking Edited to add: As stated by I'mPat, be sure to use the icing sugar to cut the tartness of this recipe.

      If you like a tarty lemon tart them this is definately the recipe for you, I only used the zest of 1 large lemon but followed through with the rest of the ingredients and used a half mix of my own recipe of Shortcrust Pastry 177434 (Shortcrust Pastry) as the base but this was my only disaster as I used a new mini food processaor and didn't get it right and the pastry was a little tough but I was more than happy with the presentation and the recipe as a whole. Would definately advise the use of the icing sugar on top to help cut through the tartiness of the filling and also quite honestely think with a little icecream or cream on the side you could stretch this to 10 without problems. A lovely light refreshing dessert, made for Please Review My Recipe.
