This classic French dessert — essentially a doubled version of an Alice Medrich recipe, although David Lebovitz uses the same proportions — is nothing more than a sweet tart crust filled with lemon curd. Buy organic or unsprayed lemons if you can, and Meyer lemons if they’re available. Or use limes (try Key limes) for a zingier version.
