Country Lemon Tart with Butter Pecan Crust


no-stick cooking spray



1 1/4 cups Martha White All-Purpose Flour

1/3 cup finely chopped pecans

3 tablespoons powdered sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 large egg yolk



3 large eggs

1 cup sugar

1 tablespoon Martha White All-Purpose Flour

3 tablespoons lemon juice

1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel

powdered sugar


Heat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 9-inch pie pan lightly with no-stick cooking spray. Combine all crust ingredients in a large bowl; mix well with a fork. Shape the dough into a ball. Press the dough with floured hands evenly into the bottom and up the sides of the prepared pie pan. Bake for 10 minutes while making the filling.

Beat eggs in a medium bowl. Add 1 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon flour, lemon juice, and lemon peel; beat until smooth.

Remove the partially baked crust from the oven. Pour the filling into the crust. Return to the oven; bake an additional 20 to 25 minutes or until the filling is set. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour or until completely cooled. Sprinkle the pie lightly with powdered sugar before serving.
