I have been out of town for work this past week at a National Convention.  Returning home, I am feeling a little frazzled.  Maybe because  next weekend we will be attending the French Quarter Festival in New Orleans and I have a million task that I need to accomplish at home and at work before leaving again. Needing to find my quick recipe’s this week, I came across this quick lemon tart and got very excited.  This is the one of the EASIEST recipe’s  that I have in my collection and I have been wanting to add this because Jon has just moved into a new apartment and has a Meyer Lemon tree on his patio.

If you are looking for a quick, delicious, and elegant desert, this is it.  Throw everything in the blender, pour into the pie shell, bake 30 minutes and your finished……

Directions:

  1. Fit pie crust into 9 inch tart pan with removable bottom according to package directions; trim edges.
  2. Process eggs and next 3 ingredients in a blender 30 seconds or until smooth.  Add melted butter; process 30 more seconds.  Pour mixture into pie crust.
  3. Bake 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Dust with powdered sugar. Garnish, if desired.
