French Lemon Almond Tart

It's the start of spring break for most schools around the country, and that can only mean that Easter is hopping along as quick as can be. My nephews are coming for a visit this week and will be staying through next Saturday, and that makes me so happy because they'll get to be here for an early Easter brunch we'll be hosting for the family that day. Since starting my business, I've really slacked on my hosting duties, so I'm particularly excited about not only finally having a work-free weekend, but getting to spend it with loved ones. I'm making up for lost time, so I may be going a little over the top on the menu, but that's ok. We'll be serving traditional brunch foods, but I'm also going to throw in a spectacular French Lemon Almond Tart for good measure. This recipe I snagged off of Golden Blossom Honey is so elegant, delicious, and perfect for spring with its happy color. 
This isn't a super quick tart, but the little effort that you do have to put into its creation offers a hefty payoff on the finished result. It has a beautiful combination of sweet and tangy, and it's just overall a very pretty tart to have on the table. You can leave it as is and it will still wow a crowd, but I chose to dress mine up with fresh berries and a dusting of confectioner's sugar for a little extra fancy touch. The recipe did call for sliced almonds to go on top, but I completely forgot to add those to mine before baking. But it still had a hint of almond thanks to the extract in the mixture and in the crust. You don't have to be hosting any gatherings by any means to have an excuse to make this tart. Do you and make one for yourself to enjoy with an afternoon cup of tea or a late night sweets craving. Or just for the heck of it. I'm of the firm belief that these kinds of delicacies should be savored whenever, wherever. 

1 cup flour
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
7 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon cold water
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
4 eggs
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons grated lemon zest
2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup sliced almonds

Do you prefer tarts that are sweet or savory?



  1. I like my tarts to be sweet, not savory and this one looks delicious. Enjoy your family time! It's nice that you're getting a well-deserved break.

  2. That looks delectable. I prefer everything sweet, but shouldn’t really have that these days. But I won’t turn down an herb and cheese filled tart.

    1. I love herb and cheese tarts! I never turn them down either!

  3. Sure does look nom! I love lemon in everything. Hope you will have a lovely week with the kids! I no longer eat flour so no tarts for me, sadly. I did switch to corn, buckwheat and millet flour, but haven't ventured into making bread with them yet. I mostly survive on polenta and oat patties and pancakes for breakfast. I did oats and chia pan buns today and they were filling. But it is all very time consuming.... I spend and hour and a half each morning in the kitchen.

    1. Here's hoping you can hire yourself a personal cook some day. It's the long prep that usually demotivates me. How did you like the chia buns?

    2. They were nice given that I have nothing else to eat LOL
      You just leave a spoonful of chia to soak in a half a cup of water over night, then in the morning you mix that with two cups of ground oatmeal, a bit of salt or vegeta and half a cup of water, leave to rest ten minutes, then spoon it into a very lightly greased pan (you should get about six little buns / shape them a bit with the spoon), and then fry them on both sides covered on a very low heat. You can either eat them like that with a bit of a butter on top and some salad, or you can cut them in half and make sandwiches.

  4. If one enjoys it when ever and where ever is sure the way. Work free with family time is sure a win too. Enjoy!

  5. Gracias por la receta. Se ve rica te mando un beso.
