Taste of Home recipe card sent in by Erlene Cornelius of Spring City, Tennessee. This is a delicious recipe! I made fresh whipped cream to dollop on top of the tart but you can use Cool Whip or Dream Whip. I just prefer the taste of freshly whipped cream.

Ingredients

1 c
granulated sugar
1/4 c
cornstarch
1 c
milk
3
egg yolks, beaten
1/4 c
butter
1 Tbsp
freshly grated lemon peel
1/3 c
freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 c
sour cream
1
pastry shell (9-inches), baked

WHIPPED CREAM

1 c
heavy cream, cold
1/4 c
confectioners sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a saucepan, combine the sugar and cornstarch. Gradually add milk until smooth. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened. Reduce heat; cook and stir two minutes longer. Remove from the heat. Stir a small amount of hot liquid into egg yolks; return all to the pan. Bring to a gentle boil, stirring constantly. Cook two minutes longer (mixture will be very thick).
2
Remove from the heat, stir in butter and lemon peel. Gently stir in the lemon juice. Cover and cool completely.Fold in sour cream. Pour into pastry shell. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before cutting. Garnish with whipped topping.
3
Whip cold heavy whipping cream and confectioners sugar until thickened and stiff peaks form. Since everyone's sweet tooth is different, I would gradually add confectioners sugar until I received the desired sweetness.
