Easy Lemon Tart Recipes
September 26, 2012
The weather is starting to warm up, to me that means more entertaining. I love to entertain at home – it is easier for me to have friends visit and then I can maintain my children’s normal routine.
Here are two quick, easy recipes to whip up for entertaining. They were prompted by:
I rarely purchase chocolate as a (Lindt) block has been known to disappear in a single evening at our place! You might notice that two of the flavours are missing in the photo above 🙂
The best way to describe these new flavours really is captured by the word “Intense”. When combined with the zing of lemon curd the tarts are a flavor sensation. I usually prefer plain chocolate but the real fruit bits, coupled with the characteristic deeply smooth and addictive Lindt flavor was a hit here.
I decided to use the chocolate to test some recipes. I subscribe to the theory that – the better quality ingredients, the better the results and flavor. I proved myself right (wouldn’t you know it!!) Many recipes call for “good quality chocolate”. How does this differ from “cooking chocolate”? In a few words – it tastes better…
Makes: 12 tarts
*The lemon curd recipe I used was Stephanie Alexander’s from The Cooks Companion. If you want to speed up the recipe even more you can purchase lemon curd from a gourmet deli or grocer.
So there you have it, two very easy recipes for entertaining.
There is an array of drool-worthy chocolate recipes on the Lindt website. They are categorised for cooks of any skill level from “Just Starting to “Chocolate Connaisseurs” there is also a section for Seasonal Treats (The Christmas Ice Cream Sandwich looks gorgeous!)
The winner will be announced on Friday 05/10/12. Thanks to everyone who entered it is not going to be easy to select a winner! There is a fabulous selection of mouthwatering entries.
The lovely people at Lindt are offering 16 blocks of Lindt chocolate for your pure pleasure and enjoyment. Yes – 16 blocks to one lucky winner.
Leave a comment below telling me what you will make from (at least some) of the chocolate.
The three ideas that make my mouth water the most will be passed onto Lindt to determine the lucky winner.
