CREAM CHEESE LEMON TART RECIPE

 




CREAM CHEESE LEMON TART RECIPE

Next to chocolate desserts, lemon desserts are my favorite! This recipe absolutely delighted my husband and me. It is addictively good. You will want to sliver away at this dessert each time you make yourself a cup of tea or coffee. The flavor is strongly lemon without being too tart. A perfect mix of sweet and tart in this creamy filling of cream cheese in a lemon-flavored pie. If you like, you can top it with whipped cream or sugar-free Creme Fraiche. This Lemon Cream Cheese Tart is perfect for a special occasion to enjoy with the family while keeping it healthy and sugar-free; more importantly, this delicious tart recipe is so easy to make, that most of the time making this recipe will be literally just from baking the entire tart.
