I saw a recipe for Gluten free lemon tarts on Golubka and the food styling had me at first sight.
I had to modify the recipe substantially since I don’t have pine nuts and already had an idea of what I wanted it to taste like.

Uh-oh! They aren’t supposed to look like that! I think too much oil makes it slide down the edges.

Back to the filling, add some maple syrup and mix.
