I will make this sometime for Easter, Kevin! Looks wonderful! I would like to make one with a crust and one without. Do you think cooking time would differ?

My guess is without a crust it would take less time by 5 mins or so. If you bake it in glass, it should be pretty easy to tell by watching it.

Did anyone else have trouble seeing the pictures? They aren't showing up on my computer.

NOW THEY'RE THERE! SORRY.

Tweaker Geek 03-11-2008 01:17 PM

Looks good Kevin, I still need to get one of those removable bottom tart pans.

jigglenomore 03-11-2008 01:59 PM

So pretty! Thanks fo sharing, Kevin!

I missed this, it looks absolutely yummy. I'm thinking the top is a form of lemon curd? In your opinion, Kev?

Thanks for not only the combo but the curd recipe, if I'm right.

Yes Janie, very much so.

Kevin, this looks great. I love lemon curd but never thought of putting it on cheesecake before baking. Do you think this would work on a regular cheesecake (thicker than your tart so would be baked longer) in a springform pan with your lemon curd on top? Thanks for the recipe.

I don't see any reason why it would not work.

Kevin, that looks wonderful. I hope I dont lose this recipe because i want to make is as soon as I get back from my vacation...I would make if for Easter but I will be away so I am going to make it as soon as I get back.. I love anything lemon...

WildflowerMama 03-21-2008 12:13 PM

Oh yay! This looks fabulous. Does anyone know if I can substitute all splenda for the other sugar substitutes? I'd love to make it the way it's written but I just found it today and want to make it for Easter and don't have time to get they other sugar substitutes in time. But, I've got plenty of splenda......

This is nicely tart & very lemony:)
I added a teaspoon of vanilla to both the lemon curd and the cream cheese, with good results and put a few packets of erythritol in the crust mixture.
This was a big hit at my house, even with my teenage daughter who thinks she doesn't like cream cheese (she got the last slice).
If you use a tart pan, butter the bottom well.

Tweaker Geek 04-18-2008 06:00 PM

Hey Kevin - I finally got a tart pan with the removable bottom and I made this tart. It's great - tart, lemony and sweet. The crust is wonderful. Could you use this same crust for pie or would you need more shortening for flakiness? I ask because it's a bit on the crisp side rather than flaky but I really like it.

I use both for pies and let my mood decide which I feel like.

I'm going to make this again this weekend for company and I think I want to make just a tad bit more of the filling. Would you all help me with the conversions to make about 1/4 more? Here's what I've come up with:

1/3 cup plus 3 tsp. Erythritol
1/2 plus 1/8 tsp. splenda quick pack
2 1/2 Tbsp. not/Sugar
1 1/4 cups cold water
3 egg yolks (or should I leave this at 2)
3 3/4Tbsp. lemon juice
1 1/4 Tbsp. butter
2 1/4 tsp. grated lemon peel

10 oz. cream cheese
1 egg plus 1/4 cup egg beaters (or would just the 1 egg do it? I don't have egg beaters and would have to buy some just for this.)
3/4 tsp. splenda quick pack

I know tarts are supposed to be a bit on the thin side and this is delicious as written but the lemon part seemed a bit light to me, as I recall mine didn't cover nearly as well as Kevin's is pictured.

I'm usually pretty good with doubling recipes but the fractions are making me :stars: ! What do you think?

Tweaker: I'd use the 3 yolks and add one of the whites with the cream cheese. Your other measurements look ok except the Erythritol should be
1/3 C. + 1T + 1 t.

Thanks jlatislaw. I appreciate your response.
