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
Patricia, I think you have misread the recipe and used the process for the filling when making the pastry - 07 Jul 2017
