Help with Lemon Dessert & Edible Gift

eviemichael | Apr 17, 2013 12:16 AM

I am planning my (Orthodox) Easter dessert offering for our hosts.

I'm deciding between a lemon curd tart filling: http://www.finecooking.com/recipes/le...

or a whole lemon tart: http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2009/0...

and this tart shell recipe: http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2008/1...

My questions are:

1) Which kind of tart looks more scrumptious?

2) Could I add fresh thyme to the tart dough, to add another level of flavor?

3) Any other fantastic lemon dessert ideas that would blow these two out of the water? (I'm not interested in lemon cake, however

)

4) I also wanted to bring an edible gift for the house, like strawberry jam. Any other ideas?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
