Even if you find out friends are stopping by in half an hour for coffee, you can still present them with a sweet little something by the time they arrive. This pan-baked tart can be whipped in less time than it takes to read this post and the fresh lemony flavor, combined with a bit of almond crunchiness is very pleasing. So, just in time for the week-end here is the “minimalist” recipe from the New-York Times.  Perfect for the no-fuss baker! and for SWEETTABLESCAPES too!!
