Lemon and ginger tarts (tartas de limon y jengibre)

I love citrus flavors and I have a lot of recipes of them.
Lemon is my favorite,
And if you love the lemon like me (more than chocolate) I think love these cakes I made a while ago. (Although I have outstanding recipes)

  17. Dear Gloria, I must admit to being a lemon lover as well and a tart lover too, that´s for sure. I think the combination of ginger and lemon for a dessert is just perfect - just sweet enough for being a treat, yet blissfully refreshing so as not to make you feel like you had a dessert really - and lots of flavor!
    Hope you are having a nice month of July, dear friend,
