    MarieRynr's Note:

    This recipe transforms the classic American lemon meringue pie into an elegant lemon souffle tart that enjoys the textural advantages of souffle without it's downside (the looming threat of imminent collapse). Unlike the traditional tyrannical souffle, which must be slavishly served the instant it emerges from the oven, this tart can be made ahead of time, at your leisure, and served at room temperature. Now, that's progress...

      Tried baking this in an 8x8 glass baking dish without the crust. It didn't work well. I lowered the cooking time to 13 minutes but it was still overly dry. I'll lower the time and the temp if I try it without the crust again. This was gorgeous when it came out of the oven, MarieAlice.
