Lemon Lover's Tart
Lemon is one of Patricia Wells' preferred winter flavors, and this rich creamy tart is the perfect ending to a festive family dinner. The lemon curd filling thickens slowly as it cooks; you may find the hand beating a bit tedious, but once you sample the results, you'll feel it was worth it. The tart can be prepared several hours in advance and requires no last-minute fussing, making it ideal for entertaining.
