Tips for a perfect result
- High quality lemons:
The key to making this lemon tart perfect is to start with good quality lemons. Look for lemons that are bright orange-yellow and have a smooth skin. Avoid lemons that are still green or too old, as we need the lemon zest. Starting with fresh, ripe lemons will help to ensure that your tart has a strong lemon flavor.
- Full-fat condensed milk:
Be sure to use full-fat condensed milk. This will give the tart a creamy texture and rich flavor.
- Fresh eggs:
It should go without saying, but here’s another reminder: only use really fresh eggs.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with the toppings. You can use anything from fresh berries to shredded coconut. Whatever you choose, make sure it compliments the lemon flavor of the tart.
