dessert: i thought a lemon-blueberry tart would be a lovely "goodbye summer" treat...and it was

9.01.2009


i wanted to make something delicious for sunday.
i was so excited about it that i completely skipped the usual sunday nap.
i wanted to make a tart, but my tart dish was a bit too large...
so i tried it out in these little ramekins.
it worked!



here's the ingredients for the cream:
1. one cup sugar
2. 4 large eggs
3. 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
4. zest from three lemons
5. some blueberries (for topping...not really in the cream)
6. 2 sticks of unsalted butter

so you mix everything together (sans blueberries) over some serious heat on the stove. for a long time. trying to avoid the steam hitting your arm while you whisk away...for a long time. then all of a sudden you have a wonderful creamy substance. then you've got to blend it all. and your blender will probably overheat...oh well, it will work the next day. after blending, put it in the fridge for 4 hours. then scoop it up into your tart-crust-filled ramekins, and top with blueberries.

voila!

make sure to enjoy it with friends...
with a good, heart-warming conversation.
that's what i did.
just lovely.

that looks so good! what was the crust?

the crust is a tart crust...so your basic pie crust (butter, flour, egg yolk) plus LOTS of sugar...the crust is good just by itself!
