Make on Fresco

Got lemons? Then make Lemon Cloud Tart...I do love a lemony dessert (you know I could write a book about that I think!) and as winter approaches I have a beautiful crop of Meyer lemons on my tree. We really only had a bumper crop last year for the first time, but this year has been even better!

Subsequently, I have been mixing up all sorts of lemon related recipes, so watch this space...more to come no doubt. This dessert is very simple, easy to make all of the components in advance and then assemble at your leisure, that is if you dont eat the Lemon Butter first, which I confess is easier to do than it sounds. SO, get yourself organised, one little bit at a time and enjoy this dessert any time you feel, well, a little bit under a cloud!
