The Perfect Lemon Tart

If you’ve seen my About Me page, you’ve probably noticed me beaming with happiness over a tart, looking like I am teasing you guys. That, my friends, is the perfect lemon tart. Big time teaser. I baked it for a photo shoot 4 years ago and had been procrastinating posting the recipe on the blog for the longest time. Until. Strange as it may sound, a few days ago I received a “call from the Universe” that urged me to finally do what I’d been intending to do for years.

So, a few days ago I remember waking up and the first thought that came to my mind was—why don’t I finally post that tart recipe on the blog? Literally, I thought about it as soon as I put my foot on the floor. A little later, I checked my Facebook. And the very first thing I saw there was my friend Shahla’s post about how good the lemon bars she baked from my blog turned out and how she wished to see more lemon recipes on my blog. Wow. Telepathy?

The Perfect Lemon Tart

I had to bake the tart again. I sort of liked that signal. Because a recipe like this has to be shared. So I made the tart a few days ago for a party in our house. This is the best homemade lemon tart you will ever make, guys. The recipe works. Plus it is easy. No lengthy advanced preparations to do or steps to take. Perfect results. This is for you, Shahla, and for all of you, wonderful people, from around the world.
