Cook the Issue 2010: Rosemary-Lemon Tartlets with Pine Nut Shortbread

I chose to make one big tart instead of the tartlets.  The tartlets are really cute, but my kitchen is the size of a small closet and I don't have room to stash 25 mini-tartlet pans!  I really liked the lemon curd, nicely sweet-tart, and a gorgeous bright yellow color.

The shortbread was great too--rich and just crumbly enough.  I was low on pine nuts so actually used a mixture of pine nuts and pistachios to make the shortbread.  You cannot see it in the picture, but the tart dough has pretty green flecks throughout.  Festive!  Because I used one big pan the dough took a lot longer to cook--I think about 25-30 minutes total. 

Two thumbs up for this easy and pretty dessert.
