Tarte au Citron

You can't go wrong with this flawless combination of creamy lemon custard and crumbly sweet pastry – enter Tarte au Citron, aka, Lemon Meringue Tart!

What you'll need

For achieving the best possible results with this elegant French dessert, we recommend using Les vergers Boiron lemon puree, Le Bichon tart shells, Paysan Breton butter, white sugar, and fresh eggs.

What is Tarte au Citron?

The popular French sweet treat 'Tarte au Citron', otherwise known as 'Lemon Meringue Tart', is a délectable fusion of smooth lemon cream filling, mouthwatering golden swirls of meringue, and a buttery outer crust.

If you love lemon and sugar, take a break from whatever it is that you're doing right now, and give this unearthly recipe a go!

Top tips from our chef

If you're in a hurry, you can replace the meringue with sweetened whipped cream to balance out the zesty lemon filling in the tart.

While we recommend eating the tarts the day they're made, leftovers will keep in the refrigerator for 2 days, although the meringue might get slightly sticky over time.
