So this week for the Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was The Most Extraordinary French Lemon Cream Tart...and it was delish!
I think that this was definitely one of my favorites, though much to my chagrin! I usually love chocolate desserts but this was light yet decadent, creamy and delicious.
When I started out prepping the recipe I noticed that my candy thermometer was not where it should be...then I remembered that it broke quite some time ago and I never replaced it...did I stop and buy a new one, no I pressed on, following Dorie's perfect, straight forward and almost tactile directions. It worked!
With my bowl in the water and lemon zest, juice, and egg in the bowl, I began whisking away, and what a beautiful sight that cream was. Into the blender the mixture went, butter added, cream superb!
I knew that Alex and I would never eat all of them, nor did we need any more pie dough in the freezer, so I did what most would never...I cut the recipe in half, and then half again! I used our cute little tart pans and made 2 individual servings and boy were they delicious!
I can't wait for next week...Judy of Judy's Gross Eats, has chosen....MARSHMALLOWS!
