A lemon tart is a dessert dish, a variation of a tart. They have a pastry shell with a lemon flavoured filling.

In the UK, Lemon Tart (also called Tarte au citron) consists of a pastry case (often made in a fluted tart tin) containing a baked lemon custard (usually composed of eggs, sugar, lemon juice and cream). Usually recipes include blind-baking before adding the custard. Sometimes the tart is dusted with icing sugar prior to serving.[1][2][3][4]

Alternatively, the lemon filling can be cooked in a saucepan and then added to the baked pastry case.[5]
