EGGLESS LEMON TART

Eggless Lemon Tart Recipe @ http://treatntrick.blogspot.com

The intense lemon flavor and delicate texture of this Eggless  Lemon Tart make it a perfect ending for any meal. Made from scratch, the crust contains less fat than a regular recipe.

Since I really wanted something easy to make that was sweet and bursting with tangy  lemon flavors, I settled on this Eggless  Lemon Tart. It is also an egg free recipe for the filling as well as  for the pastry.

I tried it, my family tried it. We all agreed that it came out pretty darn tasty. It had zing. The only thing that it did not have was a lot of colors for that I have used one or two drops of yellow food coloring in the filling.

So this is my low fat and  Eggless Lemon Tart recipe. I hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Vanessa Tan said...

Hi, I really would like to try your eggless lemon tarts. But may I know what kind of cream do you normally use for the filling? Sour cream it double cream?

Treat and Trick said...

Hi Vanessa,
I used Nestle cream but any other pouring cream should work too. Can't wait to see how yours turns out...

Sakshi Mattoo said...

Amazing recipe...just one question ..what should be the thickness of the dough once it has been rolled??

Sakshi Mattoo said...

Just one question.... What should be the thickness of the tart once we roll it flat?

Treat and Trick said...

Hi Sakshi,

It should be 1/8 or 1/4 in thick. Hope this helps...

radha merchant said...

Hi my query was regarding the cream , is it fresh cream?

radha merchant said...

Hi, I have a query regarding the cream, is it fresh cream?

radha merchant said...

Also is the filling supposed to be liquidity or should it solidify to a soft texture?

Treat and Trick said...

Hi Radha,

I used Nestle cream but any other pouring cream should work too. The filling is in liquid form. It will set after baking...
