what you need to make this lemon lavender tart

Let’s talk sugar! In this recipe, I used Florida Crystals® Organic Raw Cane Sugar. It’s perfect when baking gluten free and dairy free plus it’s 100% organic (yay!) and grown at a sustainable farm in the United States which is why I feel so good about using their sugar in my recipes.

Organic Raw Cane Sugar is made from pure sun-sweetened sugar cane. They are the only source for organic cane sugar grown and harvested in the USA, produced in accordance with the USDA’’s National Organic Program and certified organic by Quality Assurance International.

  • 2 1/4 cups almond flour
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp cold dairy free butter
  • 2 tbsp Florida Crystals® Organic Raw Cane Sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Lemon Curd

  • 8 lemons
  • 8 eggs whole
  • 8 egg yolks
  • 1 1/3 cup Florida Crystals® Organic Raw Cane Sugar
  • 1 1/3 cup dairy free butter soft
  • 1 tbsp culinary lavender finely ground
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt

Topping Decorations

  • lemon slices
  • dried lavender
  • flowers


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F and prepare a rectangle 14.4"x 5.9" (or similar in size) tart pan with non-stick spray. Place all the crust ingredients into a food processor and pulse until a dough forms. Press the dough evenly up the sides of the tart pan and the bottom. Place the tart pan on a baking sheet and bake the crust for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. The crust might seem too stiff and overbaked but it will soften up as it chills with the filling, trust me!
  • While the crust is baking, zest your lemons and then juice them. Whisk together the juice, zest, eggs, egg yolks (TIP: I saved the egg whites for future recipes), sugar, butter, lavender and salt into a pot or large saucepan. Cook until the mixture thickens, about 4-6 minutes stirring frequently. Once the curd has thickened and coats the back of a spoon, pour it through a fine mesh strainer to remove all the chunks and then transfer the smooth curd to the tart and use a spatula to spread it evenly. Cover and chill the tart in the refrigerator for at least two hours or preferably overnight.
    Top with desired toppings and serve!


  • If you don't have a fine mesh strainer, be sure to whisk the curd continuously to avoid clumping. Your curd won't be as smooth but it will work.
  • My tart pan is 1.5" deep, if yours is not as deep, consider cutting the curd recipe in half.
