:: a sweet recipe
I made this "Classic Lemon Cream Tart" a few nights ago, for our Family Night with our interns.  It was yummy!

Here is the recipe:

1 3/4 cups crushed graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup melted butter
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
6 egg yolks
1 large egg
1 cup heavy whipping cream
Garnish: sliced lemons

Preheat oven to 350.

In a medium bowl, combine crumbs, 1/3 cup melted butter and brown sugar.  Press firmly into a tart pan.  Bake for 10 minutes, then let cool

In a medium saucepan, melt 1 cup butter over medium heat. Whisk in sugar, lemon juice, egg yolks and egg.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly for 10 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat and cool completely.

In a medium bowl, beat cream with mixer until soft peaks form.  Fold whipped cream into cooled lemon mixture.  Spoon into prepared tart shell.  Cover and refrigerate overnight.  Garnish with lemon slices, if desired.

Hope you have another sweet weekend! :)
