Classic French Tarte Au Citron - Fresh Lemon Tart
60 mins (prep 10, cooking 50)
8 ingredients
1 servings
This is the most requested dessert in our Chambres d'Hotes; I like to make it quite tart and lemony, with creme fraiche, instead of thick double cream - plus I like it to be baked until just set and with a wobble! This is great served with a drizzle of cassis for an elegant finishing touch, plus a sprig of mint. If you are not a great lover of lemons, please reduce the quantity of lemons in the recipe.
