Lemon Tart with Pine Nuts (8 servings)


1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1/4 tsp. salt
6 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup (1 stick) chilled unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1 Tbsp. grated lemon peel
1 Tbsp. (or more) whipping cream
3 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 large egg yolk
2 Tbsp. pine nuts, toasted


For pastry: Mix flour, sugar and salt in processor. Add butter and cut in using on/off turns until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add 1 Tbsp. whipping cream and vanilla extract and process to blend. If dough is dry, add enough cream by teaspoonful's to moisten. Gather dough into ball; flatten into disk. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate 30 minutes. (Dough can be prepared 1 day ahead. Keep refrigerated.
Let dough soften slightly at room temperature before rolling.)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Roll out dough on floured surface to 11-inch round. Transfer to 9-inch-diameter tart pan with removable bottom. Trim edges. Pierce pastry several times with fork. Freeze 15 minutes.

Line pastry with oil and fill with dried beans or pie weights. Bake until sides are set, about 15 minutes. Remove foil and beans. Bake until deep golden, about 15 minutes. Cool on rack.

Filling: Mix sugar, butter, lemon juice and grated lemon peel in
heavy medium saucepan. Stir mixture over medium heat until sugar dissolves and butter melts. Whisk eggs and egg yolk in large bowl to blend. Gradually whisk in hot sugar mixture. Return mixture to saucepan. Stir over medium-low heat until mixture thickens and leaves path on back of spoon when finger is drawn across, about 3 minutes ( do not boil). Pour filling into bowl. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.

Pour filling into crust. Cover with plastic and chill at least 30
minutes or up to 2 hours. Sprinkle tart with pine nuts and serve.
