taste testing

A few weeks ago I spotted this Lemon Tart in the freezer section of Coles.  Only $5 too.
I like lemony things, so I bought one to try.

The picture on the box looks nice....

and I liked the description of the filling.

The tart is wrapped in plastic, (but that picture wouldn't load), and sits on a small circle of cardboard.

 it's not bad....the pastry is a bit thicker and firmer than I would make, more like a frozen shortcrust than a fresh homemade, but nice enough.

 The filling is nice. Lemony and creamy, with a sprinkling of icing sugar.

Mmm. I'd buy this again and I wouldn't hesitate to serve it to visitors.
Recommended? Yes.

  4. Trish; it started as dessert, then the leftovers became the next day's in between.
    Book 11? oh! your mini recipe books collection.
    It's one of my favourite quotes.

  5. Mmmm. You can't go wrong with lemon.

    I don't think we have that here (Minneapolis) but if we DID, I would buy one. And eat it. In two days.

    Not even quarter to eihgt in the morning here and I'm thinking about dessert...

  6. Pearl; I often have dessert for breakfast. Muesli bars; baked egg custard; brownies...not on working days of course. But on weekends, anything goes.
