Lemon Tart Recipe

Here I'm posting one of my favorite desserts; easy, soft, tasty and refreshing recipe in this hot summer.
As everyone know; tarts are perfect for an afternoons tea or a mornings tea; even are good as a dessert after lunch or supper.

We are going to need:

For the cream;
300g of melted butter
100g of sugar
200g of eggs
10 lemon (zest and juice)

For the dough;
2 eggs
100 of sugar
100g of butter
1 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of vanilla
2 cups and a half of flour

 The way we make the lemon tart:

First of all; mix all the dough ingredients then add the flour slowly until you have a soft dough.

If you have the tart mould put the dough in it but if don't have it; you can make a decoration just with your fingertips as you see in the picture. 

Preheat the for 10 min.
Put the tray in the oven for 10 min.

In the second step;in a large bowl put 7 eggs, sugar. 
Mix them for around 15 minutes with hand mixer then add the lemon zest and lemon juice.
Cook on the stove on a low heat without boiling until thickening.

Add the cream on the dough then enter the tray again for 15min.

Enjoy this lovely Lemon Tart Recipe from Gourmet Dish kitchen.
