TWD: Tartest Lemon Tart

This week's pick was made by Babette of Babette Feasts. I was a little hesitant to make the tart this week but since I skipped last week I decided that I would make it anyways. I should have listened to myself. I wasn't a fan of the tart although my friend liked it so he got to eat it all by himself. It was super simple to make the filling and a little challenging to make the tart dough in my mini food chopper. One day maybe I will get a real one!

I had read that lots of people thought that the tart was too bitter. I did cut off the ends of the lemons so that would reduce the amount of pith and hopefully make the tart less bitter. I also added more sugar but it didn't help the bitterness enough for me. I'm glad I only made half the recipe. I used my mini spring form pans, but it seemed to take forever to bake so please excuse the dark crust! Hopefully I will have better luck with next weeks recipe!

Go check out what other bakers have done this week.

I love lemon tarts - you make me want to bake one.

Sorry this one wasn't more of a hit. I pretty much eliminated the pith.

And mine wasn't bitter at all. Guess it depends on the lemons.

It looks just fine to me.
