GF & Dairy Free Lemon Tart

Every now and then you need to indulge yourself with a dessert.  Recently, I was given a ton of lemons by one of my clients and I immediately thought of a lemon tart!  It’s been a long time since I’ve made one, so here’s the recipe I came up with that is GF and dairy free.  Enjoy!
