Pan-Baked Lemon-Almond Tart

Sunday, April 03, 2011

My little sister also made this super-simple dessert (also from the New York Times). It was a nice, light finish to the meal -- not too sweet and not too rich. Mark Bittman titled the column about the recipe "Cake, Tart, Frittata: Call It the New Baking," which was an apt description for this hard-to-categorize dessert.

Pan-Baked Lemon-Almond Tart Time
From the New York Times

4 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup ground almonds
1/2 cup cream
1/2 cup sliced almonds, more for garnish
1 lemon, zest and juice
2 tablespoons butter
Powdered sugar, for garnish.

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl, combine eggs, sugar, salt, ground almonds, cream, sliced almonds, lemon zest and juice.
2. Melt butter in an 8-inch ovenproof skillet over low heat; when foam has subsided, add almond mixture to pan, tilting pan to distribute batter evenly. Continue to cook tart on stovetop until edges just begin to set, then put pan in oven and finish cooking, about 10 to 15 minutes more.
3. When tart is done, put it in broiler for about a minute or until just golden on top. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and sliced almonds. Serve.
Yield: 4 servings.
