After the sneak preview..


I didn't expect such a good response for my lemon tart. What more, the tart was gone in two days. You really need a stomach for sour things to eat more than a slice. Now I understand why lemon tarts always have meringue on top! You can serve this lemon tart with dusted icing sugar on top or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Here's the recipe served with Chocolate Mousse:

Simple Lemon Tart
Makes one 11" tart
Ingredients:
Sweet Pastry case:
225 g Plain Flour
85 g Sugar
1 Egg
125 g Butter, softened
25 g Ground Almonds (optional)
Pinch of Salt

Filling:
150 g Lemon Juice (about 6 Lemons)
150 g Sugar
225 g Egg Yolks
375 g Cream (any fat content)
Zest of 3 Lemons (optional)

Method:
Pastry Case:
(1) Mix ALL ingredients except Egg to a crumble.
(2) Add Egg. Mix till you get a smooth dough.
(3) Bake blind. Follow instructions on my post.

Filling:
(1) Mix Sugar and Egg Yolks.
(2) Add Lemon Juice and mix throughly.
(3) Add Lemon Zests.
(4) Stir in Cream.
(5) Pour onto Pastry Case. Bake at 100 degrees C till the tart is set.
(6) Serve chilled so that you don't get a wet centre which can be difficult to cut.

Enjoy the sweet and sour of life!
