      I think the first reveiwer must have had a brain-fade somewhere along the line, because this is a fantastic recipe! Originally from Bon Appetit magazine, I've made this tart for numerous dinner parties ever since it was first published - always to rave reviews! Thanks for taking the time to post this excellent recipe.

      I'm not sure what the other reviewer did wrong, but this was definitely not dry and tastless. If done properly you will be rewarded with a lucious, delicious tart with a beautiful lemon flavour. I did everything exactly as the recipe required and was very pleased with the results. I am very glad I was able to look past the negative review and tried this recipe. I highly recommend it to anyone that wants a special dessert. You WILL NOT be dissappointed!
