Tartine Baking Project: #49 Lemon Cream Tart

My alarm went off yesterday morning and I hit snooze.  I never set an alarm anymore, I have a little dude that serves that role for me.  So when my alarm went off I was instantly looking for a way to stay in bed.  Half-asleep, half-awake, I remembered that there was some of the sweet tart dough in the fridge, which was what I was waking up a bit earlier to make.  It was left over from the chocolate hazelnut tart, and Sleepy Me didn’t recall that it was sitting in there for over a week.  In the freezer it would have been fine, but as I rolled it out something was just off.  Rolling it out was just as dramatic as it was the first day I’d made it.  I’d put the flour in prematurely, and the texture dry, and every swipe of the rolling pin the dough was riddled with cracks.  Same this morning, expect it was worse.  The sun was barely above the horizon, and I robotically just went with it.  I put it in the oven, THEN realized it smelled weird.  I started over.

What a difference properly following directions makes!  This round of dough-making was night and day from the last – smooth, creamy, and so easily rolled out and placed into the tart pan.  There was no shrinking of the shell once it baked, and it turned a lovely golden brown.  As for the lemon cream, it’s the second time I’ve made that as well.  And the second time I’ve lamented that I do not own an immersion blender.  The food processor worked just fine, but I imagine one day when I have an immersion blender I will think, “What was I thinking using a food processor?!”

Candied zest.  Sometimes when I make something that I’ve never eaten before, I kind of internally freak out.  I have nothing to compare it to, no gauge to let me know if it’s leaning towards good or bad.  The resulting candied zest was a bit chewy and not as sweet and candy-like as I’d anticipated.  In high school, I once took a huge gulp of milk after a cross country race, expecting it to be water, and I almost died.  *Literally*  No exaggeration.  Almost. died.  This candied zest wasn’t as terrible, but it tasted more like a lemon peel than a lemon Jolly Rancher.  Is that normal?

Enjoying a chilled slice of this lemon cream tart at the end of a perfectly sunny and warm day, with a couple of lovely lady friends (with so much laughter), was completely perfect.  I’ve been (slightly) sad that we got short changed a full-on winter.  Though, last night made me eager to welcome this warm weather as I walked to my car with no jacket at night,  and an empty tart pan in hand.

    That is a beautiful looking tart! When I’m made candied orange peel in the past it had dried hard but it needs to simmer in the syrup for a loooong time and then dry out for a whole day (or more).
