Summer Lavender Cream Tart

By 10/08/2018November 18th, 2019No Comments
Lavender Cream Tart

This Lavender Cream Tart is a perfect Summer time dessert. Lavender, like any flower, can be over powering if you use too much. I like to use essential oil as it allows me to control the flavour impact better than using a lavender tea, for example.

When using an essential oil in desserts, do a few test drops away from the dessert before dropping it directly in. Some oils release faster than others and, as the bottle empties, it can change the speed at which it comes out too. Better to be safe than have your dessert taste like a bar of soap. Ya know? 🙂

If the idea of a Lavender Cream Tart doesn’t get you excited, you might want to try my Grasshopper Pie (chocolate and mint, what could go wrong?!)

    • If the dough is still a little sticky and soft add 1 tsp of coconut flour, mix through and allow to sit 2 mins before adding more if needed.
    • Roll the dough into a round between two pieces of teflex or greaseproof paper, dust the dough with some oat flour if it sticks, to ¼ inch thickness.
    • Line the tart tin with two strips of greaseproof paper.
    • Place the round of dough inside the tin, press down gently and remove the excess around the rim.
