TARTE AU CITRON

Category:    Desserts
Yield:12 servings
 
      2    Pate sucree' recipes (see re        5 lg Eggs
           -ipe)                             3/4 c  Sugar
           Raw rice for weighting shell        3 tb Lemon zest
           -                                   3 c  Lemon juice
 
  Roll out half the dough 1/8-inch thick on a floured surface. Press it
  firmly into an 8-inch tart pan with a removable fluted rim.  Trim off
  excess dough, leaving a 1/2-inch overhang. Fold the overhang back inside
  the rim, pressing it to the side of the shell, and push the dough up
  1/4-inch above the edge of the pan.  Crimp the edge decoratively with a
  fork.  Roll out remaining dough and make up another tart shell in the same
  manner.
  
  Chill the shells for 60 minutes.  Line the shells with foil, fill the foil
  with rice and bake in the lower third of a preheated 400f oven for 8
  minutes.  Remove the rice and foil, and bake for 8-10 minutes more or until
  they are pale golden.  Remove shells from the pans, transfer them to a rack
  and let them cool.
  
  In a bowl with an electric mixer, beat the egg yolks with 1/2 cup sugar
  until the mixture is thick and pale and forms a ribbon.  Beat in the zest
  and lemon juice.  Transfer the mixture to a heavy saucepan. Cook it,
  stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, over mod-low heat, until it
  registers 140f on a candy thermometer. Continue to cook at a stable 140f
  for 3 minutes longer.  Do not let it boil.  Transfer the mixture to a bowl,
  and let it cool, covered with a buttered round of wax paper, until it is
  luke-warm.
  
  In a bowl, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until they hold soft
  peaks.  Add the remaining 1/4 cup sugar, one Tbsp at a time, and beat the
  meringue until it just hold stiff peaks.  Stir a quarter of the meringue
  into the lemon mixture and fold in the remaining meringue gently but
  thoroughly.
  
  Transfer the tart shells to a baking sheet and fill with the lemon mixture,
  mounding it slightly.  Bake the tarts in the middle of a preheated 400f
  oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the tops are golden and puffed. Transfer
  the tarts to a rack and let them cool.
