Lemon Tart

Here is another recipe I received from Aunt Jean (aka FGA).  She served it at her Kentucky Derby Party and mom loved it so much that when Jean sent her the recipe, Mom promptly forwarded it on to me!  I made this for the cookout I had this past weekend and it was delicious!  The perfect dessert for those days when the temperature doesn't even seem to get out of the 90's even when the sun goes down!

Springtime Lemon Tarts

1 ¾ cups sugar
½ cup ( 1 stick butter) melted
12 to 16 tart shells
1 lemon
1 egg
¼ cup sugar
Salt to taste
3 eggs

Slice the lemon, discarding the seeds. Combine the lemon slices, 1 egg, ¼ cup sugar and salt in a blender and process at high speed until pureed. Add 3 eggs, 1 ¾ cups sugar and butter and
process until smooth.  Arrange the tart shells on a baking sheet. Spoon the lemon mixture into the tart shells, filling almost to the tops.  Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.  You may freeze the baked tarts.  Makes 12 to 16 tarts.  
Pin It!
