I've made this recipe about half a dozen times, my husband loves it! It's been a hit any time I've made it for potlucks or parties. I have divided it up to make about a dozen little tarts, 5 (or so) medium tarts and I've done one large tart. All are exceptional. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because sometimes it can be TOO lemony if you include all the lemon that the recipe

Absolutely fantastic! Even people who don't really like lemon will love this! I made it for a baby shower and birthday party with candied lemon peel on top for a garnish...was a huge hit! Works great to do four mini tarts with this recipe and cut them into six wedges for fancy mini desserts:)
