Oh yes, I'm feeling zesty, but am now deliciously hungry as well. I ♥ anything with citrus. What a stunning tart. It's just beautiful Bron.

    Wow that's beautiful, and the brulee crust sounds magic! I like the contrast of the green trees and golden tart too.

  • Hi Arwen, I thought the contrast in the photos showed the current environment well and the fact that our tart was truly the only sunshine last week, hehe. Thank you for the lovely comment

    Moving to NZ with hubz and dogs and sunshine!! Lemon is just the right thing to boost up good mood and good feelings.
    Gorgeous tart Bron!

  • Stop teasing me! hehe Thank you so much Helen, I have to agree lemon is perfect for the winter blues

    Bron, I'm a little lazy when it comes to baking blind, too - good to know I'm in such great company. :D

    Tart looks delicious and pretty!

    Happily drooling in my mind. Super thanks for the pastry recipe. Ideas roaming in my mind - this has to be a lemon tart making weekend. Smallest I can do is for 2+ - yet is only 1 of me. Will do my best to stretch it out for feeding over two days, yet will be tempting.....

    Many thank yous for another "must make" recipe, hope you're all keeping snuggly warm down there,

    I can just imagine waking up to that lovely tart!

    I never make enough pastry. I really don't. And interestingly I have been thinking about a citrus tart lately. I have a lime filling in mind. I actually recently attended a pastry class and the teacher blowtorched the top of his lemon tarts. They were individual sizes, and he had this great contraption that looked like a little round iron that you placed evenly on top then gently pressed down. Seems this is what many professionals use to get an even finish?? This looks great. Thank you for all the lovely pastry recipes and references.

    Your photographs are always so beautiful. I wish I could take pictures like that!

    Oh Bron - that looks utterly delectable! I love the Attack of the Killer Blowtorch ;-) And funny how a lot of baking gets done around the witching hour in my house too...

    Oh wow, now I'm craving tarte au citron! I've made a passionfruit version before too, which works just as well.

    Dear Bron, I just saw a recipe of yours in the home page of the largest Brazilian Internet portal UOL ( The recipe was translated, with pictures, in a site that is part or UOL, as you can see here: I wonder if you allow people to use your recipes and pictures (in this case, what should I do to use it in my own website), or if it was just picked without your permission. Best, Antonio.
