DIRECTIONS

  • To start the dough, cream together the butter and confectioners' sugar using a mixer.
  • Add the flour and mix until consistency becomes course/grainy.
  • Place dough in a ziplock bag and chill for 30 minutes.
  • Press and form dough into 10-inch tart pan covering bottom and sides.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, then remove and cool.
  • Reduce oven heat to 350 degrees and hold to wait for tart.
  • Next, blend together the granulated sugar and the eggs.
  • Mix in the lemon juice, grated lemon peel, and butter, combine well.
  • Put tart pan on a cookie sheet for stability and pour the filling mix into the tart shell.
  • Using a potato peeler, peel the outer rind off another lemon so that only the white "pith" (thin layer) remains.
  • Make 8 thin slices from that lemon and place them carefully on the tart.
  • Place tart on tray in oven and bake for 35 minutes ( at 350 degrees).
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle granulated sugar on the lemon slices.
  • Increase oven to high broil and place tart back in oven on the top rack allowing to brown lightly on top.
  • **WATCH THIS CLOSELY as you can easily burn the crust or the tart.***.
  • Cool tart completely before serving.
  • Enjoy! ;).
  • ***Hint- a culinary torch/ creme brylee torch could be used to brown the top of the tart if desired**.
