Why Lemon Tart is a Perfect Finish to any Meal
The funny thing about lemon flavoured desserts is that often non-sweet lovers like the tart-sweet combination. If you are making this Lemon Tart – Tarte aux Citron from scratch (which I recommend) it includes several steps. However, if having enough time is a challenge there are a few ways to cut corners, reduce the timeframe and still have a delicious result (see notes section).
Enjoy this tangy, sweet finish to a spring meal.
Lemon Tart - Tarte aux Citron
To make this dessert requires a bit of time and some patience as there are several steps. You can skip a few by buying the ingredients, but the result will not be quite as good.

If you don't have time to make lemon curd, you can buy it. However, nothing beats homemade.
This sweet pastry dough is Pâte sucrée in France, where you can buy it pre-made in the grocery store. In North America, look for a good-quality prepared party shell.
Time permitting: Pipe Italian meringue (which is a stable meringue) and torch the edges for a magnificent look, a traditional finishing touch for the tarte aux citron at French Patisseries.
