Lemon tart revisited

Revisited Lemon Pie Recipe

Lemon pie is one of my favorite desserts, I like this slightly tangy cream and the crispness of the shortbread, with this slightly caramelized flavor. Here, for this revisited lemon tart recipe, I put the emphasis on the presentation, paying particular attention to the Italian meringue, I took great pleasure in coloring this magic meringue, which reacts to the heat of the torch, be careful. everything happens very quickly. The ideal would be to use lemons from Menton which have no equal, it is in 1341 that this lemon appears. Cultivated between sea and mountain with the mild climate under the maritime influence limits the appearance of sugar and promotes its tangy flavor. Of course you can use commercially available lemon juice, but you will have a bit more bitterness for this updated lemon pie. I chose this Crémant du Jura Béthanie, one of the jewels of this beautiful region of Franche Comté.
