I do not own a traditional tart pan but I did not let that stop me. I bought a wonderful box of meyers lemons from costco (I am my mother's daughter!) and a lemon tart was perfect for this challenge! I also got to use my fabulous new (well, newish) food processor for the whole thing. I took this gem over to my friend's house and we enjoyed it with a bottle of red wine and lots of fun play time with her wonderful daughter.
I used the tart shell recipe from Smitten Kitchen. It was a little laborious, but it turned out fine.
After freezing the dough as the recipe called for, I rolled it out and baked it.
The sides fell which was disappointing. I was using a 10 cake pan rather than a tart pan (again, I do not own a real one) so that may have contributed to the problem. I didn't worry too much about it and just proceeded. Needless to say I didn't take any pictures of it cause it was not pretty.
I moved on to the filling while it cooled. The filling recipe is also a Smitten Kitchen recipe and calls for the use of entire meyer lemons, rind and all.
A little butter and sugar for good measure.
The quantity was perfect to fill the 10" pan.
Oh, who cares! It is delicious either way! Yum!
