Cook the Issue 2010: Rosemary-Lemon Tart with Almond Shortbread

By Pielove, member

January 8th, 2011

I used almonds instead of pine nuts-- I'm waiting for the price on the pine nuts to come down a little more before I spring for another Costco-sized bag.  Taking a cue (yet again) from liamsaunt, I decided to make a full-sized tart.  Unfortunately, as I was taking the tart out of the oven, the ring slipped off and burned my arm, and I upended the tart shell all over the table.  Bad words were said.

However, I had promised to bring dessert to a dinner party tonight, so I reassembled the Franken-tart shell and gobbed the lemon curd on top.  A little garnish and (as the Brits say), Bob's your uncle.  Phew.  Tasty tart too-- I love the combination of lemon and rosemary!

Serve after dinner liqueur with, none the wiser...I am so about lemon anything for dessert I would have never noticed.

Good job! Posted: 9:35 pm on January 8th

Liamsaunt when I saw your tart I was wowed. I have always wanted a tart pan that shape...well my b-day was yesterday and my good friend gave me that size I guess I just HAVE to make this tart!

I hope I don't burn myself! Posted: 8:47 pm on January 8th

It's not just you today--I'm in the middle of my own Fine Cooking kitchen disaster right now--photos soon come! Posted: 4:37 pm on January 8th
