Lemon, Peach and Basil Tart

Lemon, Peach and Basil Tart

A playful twist on lemon meringue pie, this tart's crust is laced with Fresh Basil Flavor for an unexpected herbal note. The filling's Juicy Peach adds an unexpected punch of fresh flavor, that pairs perfectly with the tart flavor. Tartness balanced with Sweet Meyer Lemon flavor in the fluffy topping creates a combination of flavors that tastes just like summer.
