Ingredients

Scale

FOR THE MEYER LEMON CURD

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon grated Meyer lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup Meyer lemon juice
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil 

FOR THE OLIVE OIL CRUST

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 4 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons milk or water

Instructions

FOR THE MEYER LEMON CURD

  1. Start by making the filling first since it will need to chill in the fridge before using.
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium high heat, whisk together the lemon juice, lemon zest, sugar, flour, salt, eggs and egg yolks. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for about 8 minutes or until mixture coats the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and whisk in the olive oil and vanilla extract until well combined. Pour mixture into a medium sized bowl. Place plastic wrap directly on the surface of the lemon curd (this will prevent a skin from forming). Refrigerate the curd for at least 2 hours. 

FOR THE OLIVE OIL CRUST

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly spray a 14 inch rectangular removable bottom tart pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk to combine the flour, sugar, and salt. Stir the milk or water and olive oil into the dry ingredients until completely combined. Press the mixture into the bottom and sides of the tart pan. Bake 22-24 minutes or until crust is golden brown, rotating halfway through. Set pan on a wire rack. Cool completely before filling.  
  3. Once tart crust has cooled completely, spread the curd evenly using an offset spatula. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. Serve with a dusting of powdered sugar or berries on top!
