I’ve been trying out new recipes for Easter Dinner Desserts and I’m just loving this Lemon Tart. It’s the perfect blend of sweet and sour and everyone in my family loves it!
Plus it’s a make ahead and refrigerate overnight kind of recipe, which is perfect so it’s one less thing I have to worry about the day of my dinner.
This is one recipe I’m definitely making this Easter!
12 Graham Crackers
2 TBSP sugar
5 Tablespoons butter – melted
- Crumble the graham crackers and sugar in a food processor until you have fine crumbs.
- Add the butter and pulse until well combined.
- Press onto bottom and sides of an 8 or 9 in springform pan.
- Bake at 350 for 10 minutes
- Set aside to cool
1 Cup Sugar
1 TBSP grated lemon zest
1/2 Cup lemon juice
3 whole eggs
3 egg yolks (yes, you need eggs plus extra yolks)
4 TBSP butter
- Combine the sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice and eggs in a sauce pan. Whisk until well combined.
- Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly (very important), until the mixture is nice and thick. About 6 minutes.
- Remove from heat and stir in butter until fully combined.
- Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into your graham cracker crust. Smooth. Place plastic wrap on top to prevent a skin forming and refrigerate overnight.
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 TBSP sugar
- Beat whipping cream and sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer (you can do this by hand, but it will take forever) until the the whipped cream is nice and thick.
- Spoon dollops of whipped cream on your tart when serving.
One more review for bzzagent.com and then I have a whole list of Christmas stuff to write about.
Bzzagent.com gave me three free Kroger Private Selection Frozen Foods to try. I tried a pizza, and appetizer, and a dessert.
Pizza: I tried the pepperoni, garlic pizza. I honestly would have preferred to try the supreme/vegy pizza but the rest of my family is picky and I didn’t want to eat an entire pizza by myself.
I liked this pizza ok. I thought it was kind of small for the $6.99 price on it, and I could have done without the crunchy chunks of garlic on it.
If you’re looking for something fancier than DiGiorono then you might like this pizza, but it’s not about to be my new family favorite.
Appetizer: We tried the Chicken Trumpets. I really liked them but the kids were not a fan and neither was my husband. I think these were $4.99 a box. The portion size wasn’t bad, but since I’m the only one who liked them I probably won’t spend $5 on another box.
Dessert: We tried chocolate covered cream puffs. These were winners. I think they were $4.99 a box as well, I don’t remember. These got gobbled up very quickly!
All in all, Kroger’s Private Selection Frozen Foods aren’t bad, in fact, some of them are pretty tasty, but I think they’re a bit expensive for a store brand food.
On a blog with chocolate in it’s name, I do have to have a post about chocolate.
Chocolate covered cake balls to be precise.
They’re made by a company called Sweet Jane Lynn. I think it’s two sisters who own it (and operate it).
These are delicious! My husband ordered them for Valentines day for me and they just arrived yesterday, so plan for it to take a while since they have to make every order by hand.
They’re totally worth the wait though!
