In the mood for lemon tart?

Try your hand at this this particularly lovely lemon meringue tart, conceived by Khanh-Ly Huynh, a Parisian chef.

She used a “deliberately very hard shortbread crust, an acidic lemon curd and a slightly minty meringue.”

To make it, gather a:

  • Shortbread tart crust recipe
  • Lemon curd recipe (or blood orange, lime or raspberry curd)
  • Meringue recipe, with 1/8 teaspoon mint extract
  • Piping bag with small and large plain tips
  • Optional garnish: small mint leaves
  •  
    Preparation

    1. MAKE the crust, then pipe the lemon curd and meringue in varying sizes. In the photo, all of the lemon curd is piped with a large tip; the meringue is piped with both large and small tips.

    The result: an edible work of art.

    If you want to brown the meringue…
