Lemon Curd Tart

lemon tart

I was doing some ironing the other day and caught an episode of Barefoot Contessa where she was making a lemon curd tart. I am not usually drawn to lemon desserts but this looked so good. It is Sunday afternoon and I was looking for a quick dessert to make (not that we need to have another dessert for Heaven’s sake)  It seems that I have gotten somewhat into a cooking, eating, and shopping frenzy and am having a difficult time stopping the routine.  I am not sure what it is about post Christmas that makes me so sad.  I don’t want to get back to real life and start the New Year diets and budgets.  I especially don’t want to go back to a full week of work.  It has been so nice to take some days off the last few weeks.  So in one last desperate act of defiance and denial, I felt the need to bake again.  U an rambling.

I had some lemons that needed using up, so I thought it was a good excuse to try out Ina’s recipe (don’t you love how we are on first name basis) It was really quite good and was a nice change from my usual Chocolate obsession.  It was fairly easy and fast to fix and was so pretty.  I loved the simplicity of the tart, but it would also be great with meringue or cream.  I think it would be very pretty with meringue piped in stars on top and torched. Next time!!!!
