    this was a lovely tasty tart. i did need to add some extra ground almonds and to cook it for 35 minutes before it was set, and i think i would add some extra lemon juice or use larger lemons next time, for a bit more lemon flavor. this sliced nicely and i served it with a scoop of ice cream. wonderful with tea the next day too.
