DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F Lightly butter a 10-inch pie plate.
  • In a blender, blend the sugar and lemon zest until they are well mixed. Add the almonds, and blend again until the almonds are ground fine.
  • Add the eggs, egg yolks, and butter, and blend until all the contents are well mixed.
  • Transfer the mixture to a bowl.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, and salt, and stir with a spatula or wooden spoon until the dry ingredients are incorporated. Scrape the batter into the pan, and smooth the top.
  • Bake the tart on the center rack of the oven for about 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean but the tart is still moist. Let it cool on a wire rack.
  • Spoon Basque Cream onto each plate, and set a tart wedge on top. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar, and serve.
