lemon meringue tart a new way

A Lemon Meringue Tart is a great classic spring dessert, and you get to burn stuff on purpose– time to break out the blow torch! This one has a little twist though. The “new way” here refers to the lemon filling, which instead of a snappy, eggy curd, is a lemon pastry cream. The result is lighter, in terms of texture and tang. I took it a new way of my own and used some Meyer lemon zest and juice I had in the freezer in place of the regular stuff. The Meyer lemons probably made the filling a little more tame in terms of tartness as well, but it was definitely delicious. Also, I made tartlets instead of a big tart, because I don’t like to share. Just kidding. Not really.

For the recipe, see Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll.

  1. These are beautiful Steph! Wondering if the filling of these was solid enough to “cut” – some I have seen didn’t seem like it was, others completely “cuttable”. Making this for Easter and was thinking minis in case it didn’t cut…

    • thanks! mine cream was on the soft side, definitely would have been a little sloppy if cut.

  2. Looks amazing.

  3. Your tarts are so pretty. I don’t have a blow torch so I just stuck the pie in the oven to brown the meringue.

  4. Everything always looks better as a mini – so pretty!

  5. Love the post. Glad you were successful. Mine not so much.

  6. Your minis look just beautiful! I saw straight sided tarts in French patisseries and I love the look. So elegant! I’m not keen on overly tart or tangy flavors so IMeyer lemons sounds like a great idea, yum!

  7. I love the twist on the traditional custard. And yours look lovely as ever, Steph!
