Easy Apple and Meyer Lemon Tart #FreshTastyValentines

Welcome to #FreshTasyValentines!

This week filled this space with fresh and tasty recipes- perfect to share with your valentine and today is our final day! Don't forget to check out the prize package below and enter! 

I introduced this event, sponsors and bloggers in my preview post and please click here to visit and learn more about our sponsors. Also, I want to thank Camilla of Culinary Adventure with Camilla. This lady has worked so hard to put this event together and deserves many rounds of applause- head over to her blog and show her some love!

I decided that I needed to end the week with a dessert. Apples are a favorite of mine and I am loving all seasonal citrus this time of year- especially the Meyer Lemon.  I decided that combining the two to make a tart would be a perfect end to my weeks sharing #FreshTastyValentines recipes with all of you. 

Envy Apples generously sent me 3 of their delicious apples, an apple corer and a tote bag. Envy Apple uses natural plant-breeding, non-GMO methods and crosses Braeburn with Royal Gala apples. The company started in New Zealand and has expanded to Washington State. The apples are amazing and I was lucky that my 3 year old didn't snag them before I had a change to make my tart! 

KitchenIQ generously sent me a BetterZester and Strawberry Tool. I used the zester for this recipe and the zester is wonderful and has a slightly curved design and a bonus container for easy zest removal. I used seasonal Meyer Lemons for my tart because I love the combo of citrus and apples together. 

This tart is so quick and easy! The flavors are crisp and sweet from the apple and a bit tart from them lemon. I really like having a lighter dessert and this is a perfect end of the meal for me.... if you wanted a little more richness a scoop pf vanilla ice cream wouldn't hurt! 

I want to thanks Camilla one more time for all her hard work. I have done a few of these recipes challenges with Camilla and you would not believe all the work she does to get these up and running! I also want to thank all of our sponsors again. They are so generous to us and provide such wonderful products to share with all of you.

  1. Just saved to my Meyer lemon pinterest board!

  2. Pretty! I used puff pastry for my dessert today too, and now am looking for ways to use it up. This looks great.

  3. I have all of these things! Okay, well I don't have Meyer lemons, but I have lemon. And I devoured my Envy apples, but I always have apples in my fridge so it probably won't be AS good as yours but still delicious. :)
