Lemon Heart Tart


Here’s a photo of the lemon tart I made using this great-sounding recipe from Smitten Kitchen. I’m sure the recipe is wonderful…but since I used a mixture of powdered sugar and honey on hand (no regular sugar), I’m equally certain that whatever went wrong was my fault. Plus, I don’t like it when people complain about recipes when they made all sorts of modifications.

I used meyer lemons. Turns out I am of the camp that should have used a regular lemon, I would have preferred more tartness.

The crust I did exactly as instructed and it was ok, a bit stiff, so I think if I do this crust again, I will press it in, rather than roll it out.


It was pretty though! I’ll say that. And actually, improved with age. Two days later the leftovers are Yummy.

    Looks delicious! Can you believe I don’t own a single tart pan? Or an angel food cake pan! I’m deprived over here.

    Also, regular lemons always win over Meyer.
