Hello everyone! I am here with the perfect lemony recipe for these hot summer days. (Is it hot where you are? We are sweltering here already.)
I love lemon desserts because even though it is boiling lava hot outside, if I have a bite of a tangy, lemon dessert like this Lemon Curd Tart I just feel light and refreshed.
Have you ever made lemon curd before? It's pretty easy to make. If you make this lemon curd recipe and don't want to put it in a tart, skip the gelatin part. I just added that to make sure the curd would be perfectly set.
The other great part of this Lemon Curd Tart is the Coconut Flour Crust. As you well know, we have a great pie crust recipe. I am loathe to try any gluten free pie crusts because the few times I have previously, they did not turn out well. I like this coconut flour crust because you press it into the pan instead of having to try and roll it out in advance, which is when all the gluten free crusts I've tried have fallen apart and ended up in the trash.
I felt like the coconut crust was the perfect compliment to the lemon tang, and it wasn't a strong coconut flavor so it was a perfect balance of flavor. My husband was happy because he could actually eat a slice instead of just trying to get the middle like I usually make him do.
This Lemon Curd Tart recipe is going to become a summer staple in our home, and I think it will in yours as well!
