When I was asked to try out a couple of wines by Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards, I knew it would be a great opportunity to create a dish around one of their wines.
When the box of wine finally arrived, I couldn’t wait to dive in and see what they sent to me. There was a bottle of 2012 Carneros Pinot Noir and a bottle of Blanc De Noirs sparkling wine.
I am typically a red wine type of girl, but something about the sparkling wine intrigued me. The Blanc De Noir is made from hand-harvested Pinot Noir grapes.
When I am planning what to make for guests, I put a lot of time into pairing dishes we cook with wines. I read the tasting notes for the Blanc De Noirs. It has notes of creamy cherry, lemon, and cola flavors…and it pairs well with semi-sweet desserts.
This gave me the perfect idea to use some fresh lemons from our tree to create a dessert that would highlight the flavors of this sparkling wine. I don’t know anyone that doesn’t love a good lemon tart recipe!
How To Make Gluten Free Lemon Tart:
To make the gluten-free crust, I mix all of the dry ingredients together. I then add the butter and cut it into the flour with a pastry blender.
Add the eggs and water and the dough should look like this photo above.
I press the gluten-free dough into the tart pan. It is important to press it into each curve of the pan’s edging.
Put the eggs, sugar, lemon zest, Blanc De Noir, and lemon juice into a saucepan and cook on low heat until it begins to thicken. Add heavy cream and cook on low for 3-4 more minutes.
