Lucky for Caroline, who is the baker for the month of May due to my yucky studying, we made this yummy treat for Easter. In our family there is an element of fussiness that accompanies all holiday dessert menu planning. Some can’t eat chocolate, some don’t eat meringue and some aren’t into cheesecakes. So usually this means multiple desserts to ensure full and happy tummies all around. This Easter, our big sis who is not a baker at heart, put in a request for a Nigella recipe which we will eventually get around to posting. Since that one had chocolate, there had to be a non-chocolate dessert. I had my eyes set on a different lemon tart but due to insufficient ingredients (and laziness) in the kitchen we started scouring our books for other recipes for a similar dessert, which brought us to this recipe! I must confess that I grumbled through the making of this tart because it wasn’t quite what I had envisioned and grumbled even louder when it came out of the oven looking nothing like the lemon tart I wanted to make. But in the end I was pleasantly surprised. The end product was a lovely lemon treat to take the place of our usual lemon meringue pie, which of course some people won’t eat!
You can head on over to Babette Feasts for the recipe. Thanks for choosing a yummy recipe!
Sorry for the not-so-stellar picture! The excitement of Easter is to blame!
