French Lemon Tart...

It all started with a bowl of lemons...
And a camera...
and as I was creating fabulous lemon styled photos to share with you I thought...
Garden flowers in the photo would be lovely...
And French Country style flower top bottles...
Flowers picked fresh from Mia Bella Gardens...
 A bowl of lemons, a camera and a few flowers soon became...
A pastry rolling session...and then...
French Lemon Tart.... Decadent and delicious....


French Lemon Tart...
Base:
1 Packet of sweet pastry - rolled to fit a flan dish , press up sides, and prick all over with a fork. (Bake blind with beans if you like, but I never do, once it is cooked, I just trim the sides if and push sides back in place if they collapse a bit.)
Bake in hot 200 celsius oven for 8 to 10 minutes.

Filling:
In a bowl, beat 5 eggs and 1/2 cup caster sugar.
When frothy add 3/4 cup of liquid cream. Mix and then add 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice.
Pour into hot base and return to oven, lower temperature of oven to 180 celsius. 
Bake for 20 - 25 minutes until the filling is cooked. 
When cold sprinkle icing sugar over top.

                   Easy to make, and delicious to eat....ENJOY!
