This lemon chess tart is sweet, tangy, and delicious. It’s rich pine nut crust perfectly complements its tart filling.
My hand involuntarily reached for the book nestled on the “new” shelf in the kids’ section of our public library. The three-letter title —Pie–told me all I needed to know; if this novel featured pie, I wanted to read it.I consider pie a perfect food, as does my daughter Eliza. I knew immediately that we would enjoy reading this book together.
We decided to start with the Lemon Chess Pie from chapter 8. After we got going, I realized that we’d chosen correctly; aside from slicing two lemons, Eliza did everything, from zesting to juicing to measuring and mixing.
I recommend both this book and this tart, especially if you have a small person in your life who loves sweets. Eliza loved Pie so much that she decided to buy it for herself. I’m pretty sure she’s read it at least four times on her own.And she’s made the Lemon Chess dessert as many times as well. She’s only seven, but she already has a signature recipe.
