This dessert looks like it takes a lot of time to prepare but it is actually very easy! I like to serve it with vanilla or coffee ice cream.—Gilda Lester, Millsboro, Delaware

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar

Directions

In a small bowl, beat the butter, cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and lemon peel until creamy. Beat in flour just until combined.

"Didn't have a tart pan so used a 9" Springform pan, running crust up the sides. Also used pecans, not toasted, instead of hazelnuts. Turned out FANTASTIC!! A HUGE hit with all guests!!"

"This is a great and easy recipe. I did not have a tart pan and ended up making it a pie, of which the bake time was longer. If you make a pie be sure to spray you pie plate with Bakers Secret or something comparable. Excellent pie for even the fussiest choco-holic!!!"

"This is a lovely finish to a meal. The crust dough needs to rest a little longer than 30 mins, mine was still way to soft. But all up, very nice and I will make again."
