Lemon Tart with Raspberries
I’m pretty much a lemon-holic if there is indeed such a thing. I always have lemons in my refrigerator. They go with OH just about everything and they make one lip smacking tart to boot. This one is luscious, luxurious and a cinch to make. The hardest part will be arranging those raspberries on top. If you’re impatient and want to skip that step I’d totally understand. The lemon goodness is waiting just below and for us lemon-holics, it’s pretty irresistible.
You CAN make your own pie crust and sometimes I do just not this time. I’ve spent the better half of the past two weeks baking goodies galore and I wanted something easy, not a cookie and NOW so refrigerated pie crust to the rescue. The filling takes just 4 ingredients that you (if your pantry is anything like mine) probably already have in the house. Butter it what makes this tart tempting and luxurious. REAL® butter that is.
