Meyer Lemon Tart .......

I finally found Meyer lemons this past weekend at the farm I frequent in New Hampshire.  Now all I needed was a delicious recipe that would highlight their subtle tartness.  I  found just what I had been looking for in a Pillsbury recipe  Was it ever delicious.  Here is the recipe.
 Ingredients:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp. cornstarch 
  • 2 tbsp. flour
  • 1 1/2 cups water 
  • 3 eggs yolks, beaten 
  • 1 tbsp. Meyer lemon zest 
  • 1/3 cup Meyer lemon juice 
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1 Pillsbury pie crust 
    • Heat oven to 450°F. Bake pie crust as directed on box for One-Crust Baked Shell, using 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom or 9-inch glass pie plate. Cool on cooling rack 15 minutes.
    •  In 2-quart saucepan, mix sugar, cornstarch and flour. Gradually stir in water, stirring until smooth. Heat to boiling over medium heat; cook and stir 1 minute longer. Remove from heat. Quickly stir about 1/2 cup hot mixture into beaten egg yolks; mix well. Gradually stir egg mixture back into hot mixture. Stir in lemon peel and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat about 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add butter; stir until melted. Let stand 10 minutes.
    • Carefully pour hot lemon filling in crust. Cool 2 hours; top with blackberries ans strawberry slices. Refrigerate until serving time. Remove side of pan. Cover and refrigerate any remaining tart.
    The tart was a great success and won raves all around.

    3. Now i have to ask you a dumb question. Everyone talks about the glory of a meyer lemon. Can you tell me the difference between those and a regular lemon? I haven't found them in our store yet to try them.

      Love this recipe!...

    8. Yum!!! This looks so delicious! I also echo the comment from Karen... what's the difference between a Meyer lemon and regular lemon? I am pretty sure that we can't get Meyer lemons over here in Australia but I keep reading about them in American food blogs so I reckon they must be pretty delicious! Thanks for the lovely tart recipe. Gorgeous photos.

    9. So beautiful and spring-like! All the Meyers are gone from the store here, but I'll make this with regular ones. There's nothing more gorgeous than blackberries on lemon curd!

    11. I think that Meyer lemons are sweeter and less sour than regular lemons. Their skin is also on the pale orange side.

    14. This looks so good - lemon puddings tempt me so much more than chocolate!

      Thank you so much for your wonderful (and very helpful) comment about my darling old dog, Toby. I think my latest post may make you smile, for a couple of reasons. I have printed the poem out, and although it made me cry, at first, it has helped. Thank you.
