Crostata Meringata al Limone - Lemon Curd - Meringa Italiana

Spring is not here yet, but the profusion of citrus lends such bright notes to food and table, it almost seems it has arrived. Baskets of Meyer lemons, Moro and Sanguinello oranges fill my kitchen counter. It is time to start thinking about Easter desserts, and a crostata al limone would be a welcome addition to any Easter dessert table. I used Meyer lemons, but if you have Eureka, Lisbon, or any of the Italian lemons now available, use them. This is a particularly nice recipe for a beginning pastry maker. The addition of baking powder to the dough gives the tiniest bit of lift, while promoting browning and tenderizing it a bit. I have called for Italian baking powder by Rebecchi which has vanilla added.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. My computer packed up for a week. I've always wanted to make lemon curd. Is there a way of keeping it longer, like a jam? Hi Scintilla, Yes, lemon curd will stay up to about a week in the refrigerator, also you can freeze it for a year!



A MELHOR TORTA DE LIMAO DO MUNDO (Tarte au Citron) - TPM, pra que te quero?

Serves 8 to 10 Lemon Curd Cake is not for the faint of heart. This beautiful and light summertime cake takes its inspiration from limoncello, a lemon liqueur from the Amalfi Coast that is made by steeping lemons in pure alcohol and sugar. It is served all over Italy in frosty glasses. I like to use limoncello as a flavoring for this layered sponge cake filled with a dense lemon curd, which I have lightened in taste by combining with whipped cream to create a mousse consistency. The lemon curd should be made a day ahead and will keep for up to a week in the refrigerator. Cook together over medium heat until the butter melts and the sugar no longer feels gritty in the bottom of the pan. Slowly pour in the eggs, continually mixing them, and cook over medium heat until the mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon.
