When cooking a classic lemon tart, French chefs knead a crumbly short-crust dough, make delicious lemon cream, and decorate the masterpiece with airy meringue. You might think, “How could one possibly improve this work of art?” but we did. Drumbeat, please! The curtains open, and we see her! Gleaming in the stage lights is a delightful new variation of the French tart.
The short-crust dough is given a sophisticated almond flavor and complemented with a delicate buttercream based on lemon juice and eggs. The chef-d’oeuvre is decorated with perfect meringue, an Italian recipe.
