Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8x8-inch baking pan.

  • Combine butter with 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar in a bowl until smooth; stir in 1 cup flour. Press dough into prepared baking pan; pierce crust with fork in several places to prevent crust from puffing up during baking.

  • Bake crust in the preheated oven until slightly golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes. Let cool.

  • Whisk white sugar and eggs in a bowl; stir 3 tablespoons flour into mixture and add lemon juice, lemon peel, and salt. Whisk until thoroughly combined. Pour mixture into baked tart crust.

  • Bake until filling is set, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool and dust with 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar.

Cook's Notes:

Recipe can also make 4 individual tarts; adjust baking time for the crusts and filled tarts. (Check crusts after 8 minutes and tarts after 12).

The lemon peel gives the tart a kick, but if you don't want it in your tart, add the peel and strain it out.

I like to refrigerate mine when they have cooled.
