Bing's Lemon Tart
This is one of the nicest desserts to serve after a heavy savoury dinner.
The lemon curd is light and tangy and cleanses the palate, while the sweet crispy crust is sheer delight to bite into.
I've discovered that the key to a good smooth lemon curd is patience. When I cooked it slowly over pot of steaming water instead of over direct heat, it turned out smooth and thick and really curdled nicely. This curd can also be used as a topping for cheesecake to get lemon cheesecake.
