The lemon tree in our back yard is super laden with fruit at the moment and yesterday I finally gave into Luke's hints ("Wow, that tree has so many lemons, it's a pity they're all going to waste", "All those lemons are falling off and just rotting", "I put some lemons in the fruit bowl" and the most *ahem* subtle one yet... "I think you should bake something lemonish").
I've been making regular batches of yummy crunchy lemon muffins and attempted lemon meringue pies but I thought it was time to try something different (and something that didn't involve whipping eggs whites for hours with a fork since we don't have a beater!)
Lemon Tart Slice
It has a crisp base with a yummy gooey lemon layer!
Although it took FAR too long to thicken, I'm not a very patient cook.
And I just had to show you these little beauties, made by my lovely friend Jane for a BBQ we had last week. I think she called them "Sweetie Treaties" I just love how crazy they look when they're poked into an orange!
