  • Summary

    Another one for the lemon addicts and a very easy recipe. There are many versions of this classic French pastry. Some chefs use more sugar, some more cream, etc. This particular recipe is on the tart side because that is how I love it. Tweak it to suit your taste if necessary.

    Ingredients

    • zest of 2 lemons, finely minced
    • juice of 2 lemons
    • 5 eggs
    • ¾ cup sugar, use one cup if you like it sweeter rather than tangier
    • 1 cup whipping cream
    • 1 1/4 cups flour
    • pinch salt
    • 2 tbsp sugar
    • 1/2 cup cold butter, cut in small cubes
    • 1 large egg yolk
    • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1 ounce ice water
