TWD: Tartest Lemon Tart
Happy Tuesday! This week, the Tuesdays with Dorie group made the Tartest Lemon Tart, chosen by Barb of Babette Feasts.
This tart was made from whole lemons. Yep, the lemon pulp, peel, and skin all got thrown into the blender with sugar, egg, cream, cornstarch and butter. It's a dessert for true lemon lovers.
I questioned my status as a true lemon lover and decided to remove the pith, the white part between the lemon pulp and the skin. (That's the pith on the left.)
I'll just cut to the chase here, since my review is not a glowing one. I didn't like it. At all. It was bitter... much too bitter to enjoy the tangy lemon flavor.
Sorry! It's bound to happen when you're baking every recipe from a cookbook. There are going to be those that don't make your taste buds dance. It's nothing personal.
I'm sure there were plenty of others that did enjoy this tart, though, so please stop by and see all of the lovely lemon tarts at the Tuesday's with Dorie site. The blogroll is on the right hand side.
If you're interested in the recipe, check out the book "Baking, From My Home to Yours", or visit Babette's site.
Bu-bye for now!
