I've made all kinds of lemon tarts before. If you've by chance landed on this blog looking for a lemon tart recipe, please kindly disregard those and fast-forward straight to this guy. Fair warning, this takes a while and may not be for the faint of heart (see the novel-length recipes below); I tried and failed to make it during naptime. It's worth every extra second, though. The end result is the perfect lemon dessert. Velvety, tangy, smooth, and everything a lemon lover could dream of. I'm not a huge shortbread fan and the crust was very shortbread-y, so I might try a different crust recipe next time.
