How to Make It

Step 1

To make crust: In a food processor or a bowl, combine flour, granulated sugar, butter, and lemon peel. Whirl or rub with your fingers until mixture has texture of fine crumbs. Add egg yolk and whirl or stir with a fork until a dough forms. Pat dough into a ball, then press evenly over bottom and up sides of a 10-inch tart pan with removable rim.

Step 2

Bake crust in a 300° oven until golden, about 30 minutes.

Step 3

Meanwhile, make filling: In a food processor or blender, whirl eggs, granulated sugar, lemon slices, flour, and butter until lemon is finely chopped.

Step 4

Pour filling into hot crust. Continue to bake until filling is firm when pan is gently shaken, about 12 minutes. Let tart cool.

Step 5

Cut figs into thin slices and arrange neatly over tart filling. Sprinkle figs with lemon juice and dust with powdered sugar. Cut tart into wedges.
