Ingredients

Crust

Meyer Lemon Filling

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 3 egg yolks, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon grated Meyer lemon peel
  • 1/3 cup Meyer lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine

Topping

  • 3 cups fresh strawberries, sliced

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 450°F. Bake pie crust as directed on box for One-Crust Baked Shell, using 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom or 9-inch glass pie plate. Cool on cooling rack 15 minutes.
  • 2
    In 2-quart saucepan, mix sugar, cornstarch and flour. Gradually stir in water, stirring until smooth. Heat to boiling over medium heat; cook and stir 1 minute longer. Remove from heat. Quickly stir about 1/2 cup hot mixture into beaten egg yolks; mix well. Gradually stir egg mixture back into hot mixture. Stir in lemon peel and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat about 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add butter; stir until melted. Let stand 10 minutes.

    Carefully pour hot lemon filling in crust. Cool 2 hours; top with strawberry slices. Refrigerate until serving time. Remove side of pan. Cover and refrigerate any remaining tart.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Meyer lemons are slightly sweeter and less acidic than more common varieties.
  • tip 2
    Because the crust will sometimes puff a little in the middle during baking, pricking it again after baking helps "deflate" the puffing. One or two pokes with a fork should do the trick!
