Luscious Lemon Tart


My son loves lemon doughnuts, but I usually don't fry anything so I couldn't make those for him...is there a good baked lemon doughnut recipe?  Anyways, I wanted to make him something special since his schedule is very hectic right now with soccer and football! While looking through my recipes I decided on a lemon tart, however a lot of them called for lots of sugar or lots of lemon juice!  I didn't want it to be sickening sweet or too tart so I decided to make my own. This recipe is slightly sweet with a subtle lemon taste to it...exactly what I wanted!
