  • Summary

    The delicate flavor of Meyer lemons can get lost in the shuffle of most lemon desserts. But this recipe is the perfect reason to seek out the special citrus; the simple curd filling really lets them shine. The dish was inspired by recipes in "Chez Panisse Desserts," by Lindsey Remolif Shere.
