Lemon + Rosemary Heart Tart

Last month, I stumbled upon this recipe and the lovely pictures looked so delicious I figured this tart was bound to be tasty. So, I decided to make for a ladies night last week and it was a big hit! Sweet, tangy and light, perfect to enjoy with a glass of white wine and some girl talk.

My mom has a great recipe for lemon bars but this was my first time making a lemon tart. Let me tell you that yes, it tastes as good as it looks and was actually really simple to whip together! Using Greek yogurt made the filling less dense and the hint of rosemary added a subtle earthy taste. I think the crust could have used more brown sugar to balance the tangy zing of fresh lemon juice. You can find the original recipe here.

Baking this tart in a heart shaped dish would be a perfect homemade Valentine's Day treat for your sweetie!

There was some left over filling so I couldn't resist baking this little guy just for myself! This recipe would be great for making mini lemon tarts too, just use extra large muffin tins.

Mix this...

With a bit of this...

Bake it up nicely and dig in! (*be patient and let it chill first)...
