looking for: looking for strawberry lemon tart

sflindaSeptember 10, 2007

I recently downsized houses and somehow lost some cookbooks.(Goodwill) This particular recipe was in a Best of Sunset that goes back even further than the archives at Sunset.com It was called something like "shooting star strawberry-lemon tart"

The strawberries were cooked, then added to a pie tart. Then the lemon curd was swirled into the top, hence the shooting star effect. Of course now that it's lost my family insists that this was their favorite. Thanks in advance for any help. linda

This is from findarticles.com which is pop-up hell so here it is:
Shooting Star Strawberry-Lemon Curd Pie

1/2 cup butter or margarine

1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel

1/2 cup lemon juice

1 cup sugar

3 large eggs

Press-in lemon crust (recipe


1/2 cup cornstarch 1 1/2 quarts hulled strawberries, rinsed

and drained In the top of a double boiler over simmering water, melt butter with lemon peel, lemon juice, and cup sugar. Whisk in eggs until blended, then stir until mixture thickly coats a spoon, about 5 minutes. Set aside cup lemon curd. Spread remaining curd into crust; chill uncovered. In a blender or food processor, puree remaining sugar, cornstarch, and strawberries (a portion at a time, if needed) until smooth. Pour into a 2- to 3-quart pan. Stir over mediuin-high heat until boiling rapidly, 6 to 7 minutes. Place pan in a larger bowl of ice water. Stir often until thick enough to flow heavily when pan is tilted, 15 to 20 minutes. Spoon into crust. Drop 6 or 7 spoonfuls of reserved lemon curd, well apart, on strawberry filling. With tip of a chopstick or knife, draw lemon curd in swirls into strawberry mixture. Chill, uncovered, until set to touch, at least 3 hours. If made ahead, cover and chill until next day. To serve, push from rim and set on a platter. Serves 8 to 10.
