Explosion of lemon freshness

Lemon Freshness Blast Recipe

It’s all in the title, and believe me, this dessert is really a killer, as you go down in the verrine the lemon flavor increases. It was my friend Laurence who gave me a supply of “Régal” magazine, so I found this devilish recipe in this magazine. I took advantage of the lemon festival in Menton to make this Explosion of lemon freshness, it’s almost a lemon tart, but then well revisited. I made this lemon dessert on the occasion of a tasting evening at home, we tasted wines and dishes all evening and this dessert was finished by all, even after a more than generous meal. For this recipe, of course, the lemon must be organic, because you will zest them without moderation, you will love this lemon tart that I presented in a glass, you also have the pleasure of the eyes. To keep the shortbread from the dough, I prepared two pockets with smooth nozzles. You’ll love that boost of lemon flavor with this Lemon Blast of Freshness.
