Tartine's Shaker Lemon Pie
This recipe is adapted from the book 'Tartine'. I have lemons overflowing and absolutely love lemons and anything made with them...I enjoy eating the rind of lemons and the pith too which is full of vitamin C...also I have read now that research says lemons help with bone loss. I used my mandolin to slice the lemons paper thin and sugar soaked for a good 24 hours..nice tender and tasty sweet peels went into the pie baked in a tart pan. Delicious tender peels floating in a lemony custard with a butter flaky crust sprinkled heavily with baking sugar crystals...not to tart not to sweet.
