Delicate Lemon Tart

Delicate Lemon Tart

This is a gentle tart (or crostata) with a rich sweet and sour taste and bright lemon flavor.

It is very easy to bake.

It is worth mentioning that it is better to take lemons with a fine peel which do not contain much of the white matter with a bitter taste. However, light spicy bitterness should remain the prominent feature of this tart.
