I visited Brussels recently and tasted the most delicious lemon tart in a coffee shop. After experimenting in the kitchen, I finally succeeded in making the best lemon tart of my life! Use lemon slices, fresh mint and icing sugar to decorate the tart before serving.
. Love this recipe, it is very popular with the family. I made this on Sunday using organic eggs which had very orange yolks resulting in an orange lemon tart.... Yummy none the less!!!! - 16 May 2013
I would have liked: an idea of how many lemons were needed and the size of tart tin to be used. 'Rub the butter in until it forms a dough' - until it resembles breadcrumbs, surely, and then add the liquid to form a dough. I followed the recipe exactly, except that I lined the pastry with greaseproof paper and baking beans and pricked the pastry surface with a fork (normal procedure when baking a blind pastry case). and when the pastry started to cook, the sides of the flan sank down onto the base. There was no way to remedy this, so I had to start again with another pastry recipe. New Year's Eve; dessert promised for a big French lunch tomorrow; shops all shut; disaster!! Hope the filling will work with ordinary shortcrust which is all I have the ingredients for. I won't be making this again. - 31 Dec 2014
my two children ages 10 and 12 made these on their own for mothers day and had no trouble at all easy to understand and they will be making these again. - 13 May 2015
