Okay I know it’s not Tuesday and I now know this was not this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, but I figured I would still post it! I am a huge procrastinator by nature…I have a theory that I work better under pressure although this hypothesis in completely unproven and this post will attest to that fact.

On Monday I was scrambling around attempting to take care of random tasks when I tried to fit in the TwD recipe. I knew it was a lemon tart and I was too lazy to check the site, so I flipped to the index and located the lemon tart recipe. I cut the recipe in half and ended up with (6) 4 inch tartlettes. After I made the lemon cream and realized it needed to be chilled for at least four hours, I gave up on the recipe and figured I would tie up the loose ends i.e., plate, garnish, photograph on Tuesday afternoon and get it posted. On Tuesday morning I started checking out the TwD posts and thought my filling looked a tad bit different…mine was creamy looking and the photos of this week’s recipe looked almost like lemon curd. I headed over to the TwD site and realized that I had made the wrong recipe. Turns out I had whipped together The Most Extraordinary Lemon Cream Tart instead of the Tartest Lemon Tart…my bad (yeah I just said my bad)!

For the recipe I used Meyer Lemons because that is what I had on hand…Honestly I was not a huge fan the tart I made; however, my co-workers raved over this dessert and requested I bring in the rest of tartlettes the following day! You can rest assured that next week’s recipe will be accurate and posted on time…well…maybe!

    I think I have you beat on queen of procrastination, in fact I am doing that right now! I made this tart for my dad a while back, he was a big fan, but I thought it took a lot of work.

    Your tart looks lovely. That recipe is still one of my favorites–I can just eat the filling with a spoon…which is why I haven’t made it again. =)

    LOL, wanna hear lazy? I don’t bake cookies because it seems like to much work. I’d rather make bars/squares which are kinda like cookies.

    Your tart looks good and I have to tell you ….I start grinning everytime I see the sprigs of mint on your desserts. Weird but I love ’em!

    Oh, gosh, I can easily imagine making the same mistake. I actually liked the tartest one more than the cream one, which was very surprising.
