Simple lemon tart

This is probably the simplest recipe of lemon tart I have ever seen. It is quick, does not require any fancy ingredient and the lemon provides a strong flavored taste to the tart.
Usually, the lemon tarts can be decorated with meringue or whipped cream. However, for this time, I chose not to decorate it, to remember its simplicity.

This tart was dedicated for the end of the school year party of my daughter and I can assure you it has disappeared almost instantly from the table. And yes, her second kindergarten year is almost gone, and as a parent, I can only wonder where all this time has gone while she has grown so big. Can we stop the time and enjoy our kids for longer? I think we cannot, so that's why, every moment spent together is so precious as it will never come back.
