We created just the right balance between sweet and tangy in this citrusy gluten-free treat. The tart has a chewy crust and a creamy lemony filling. We don’t use any eggs, milk or butter to make it suitable for a vegan diet. Enjoy as a snack, after school treat or dessert. Add some yogurt and coconut or dairy cream as a topping.
