Lemon Shortbread Tart. I could stop there, but I will explain where my love of this tart has come from.
There is this Swiss chain market called Migros. It has some of the most amazing prepackaged tarts ever! Actually all of their pastries are pretty darn good. Usually we have influx of family and friends from Switzerland that come to visit during the summer. When they ask what to bring us, my list always included a lemon tart from Migros. We then freeze them (since we get so many) and enjoy them throughout the year.
Last year I was pregnant. I am not a nice pregnant person. I sort of told everyone, including my mother in law, that they could not come back this year. Thus, no lemon tarts this year. *Sidenote- I don’t think I was completely in the wrong. After all, I deserve a vacation too, not just the job of tourist guide! Ok back to the post…conscious cleared*
So I made my own, and it was pretty damn good if I do say so myself! The shortbread crust was moist and flaky. The lemon filling had just enough tart, just like the lemon tart from Migros! The best part is that it is simple to make. One lemon….peel and all! I suggest you splurge and buy the Meyer. It makes a difference.
