After weeks of using chocolate as the primary ingredient, I decided to spice things up and use lemons instead. In my mini library, I search for a lemon based dessert that would inspire me. I was weighing the pros and cons between lemon bars or lemon tarts, which now that I think of it are kind of like the same thing just in different forms. Ultimately I made my favorite Lemon Torte, I got this recipe from Heny Sison a celebrated chef here in Manila. I attended one of her class years ago. The first time I made this it turned out perfect and never look for any other alternative for lemon torte because for me this is it. It’s tangy and sweet at the same time with a lot of crunch from the walnuts. It’s one of those, I thought I don’t like lemons, it’s that good! I don’t make this often though because it’s hard to fit 5 pans in my home oven because it’s too small for this and every time I managed to squeeze the lot it, it’s mighty time consuming as well and the dishes! Don’t get me started in the dishes that piles up whenever I make this. Is so exuberant! And I very much hate washing the dishes! But then my heart is not keen on making either the bar or the tart, so torte it is.
