Coolicon Tart Lemon Tart

Tart Lemon Tart

Served chilled with a lemon garnish, this recipe’s tart citrus flavor and baked crust lends a cool, sophisticated ending to a rich summer dinner.

Tart Pastry:
1 1/3 cups unbleached white flour
7 tbsp butter
Pinch of salt
¼ tsp pure vanilla extract
¼ cup sugar
3 to 4 tbsp ice water

Filling:
Juice of 4 lemons
5 tbsp butter

½ cup sugar
5 eggs, well beaten
¼ tsp pure vanilla extract
1 lemon, sliced in very thin rounds


Cut the butter into small pieces and work it into the flour with a pastry cutter, two knives or your fingertips. Mix in the salt, vanilla and sugar, and then just enough ice water to bind. Press the dough with your fingers into a 9- or 10-inch spring-form pan. Chill the crust 1 hour or overnight.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line the chilled crust with waxed paper and fill with dried beans, rice or pastry weights to prevent the crust from buckling during baking. Bake 15 to 20 minutes. Carefully remove the waxed paper and its contents.

Lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees.

Mix together lemon, butter and sugar, and heat until the butter melts and mixture is just warm. Pour beaten eggs slowly into this mixture in a steady stream, whisking constantly. Continue to stir over low heat until the mixture thickens into a custard. Stir in vanilla. Pour into prepared crust and bake for 35 to 50 minutes or until the custard sets and the top becomes golden.
