A Meyer Lemon Mess

Dessert / Sweet / Tart

A few things I look for in a perfectly balanced lemon tart: a thick and chewy buttery crust, a super strong tart citrus center (not much sugar added at all), and something creamy laying over the surface of it all, as a 1:1 ratio of citrus to cream. It’s this series of layers that’s just insanely tempting, once one scoop is scraped from the plate, there can’t not be a third or fourth and fifth. I […]

I especially adore this combination because it’s bright, and unexpected. There’s a sweet creaminess from the beautiful scallops and an explosion of sweet and tart juice from the strawberries.
