Recipe's preparation

    Tart shells

  2. Place sugar, butter, flour and salt into mixing bowl and mix 10 sec/speed 6 until mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

  3. Add water and knead 10-20 sec/Closed lid/Dough mode to form dough. Adding more water through hole in lid if necessary to bind.

  4. Turn pastry out onto a floured surface and lightly knead to bring together. Form dough into a ball shape, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for approx.15 minutes.

  5. Roll out pastry and line prepared tart tin/s, pricking each base multiple times with a fork.

  6. Bake at 200C for 18 minutes or until golden brown in colour.

  7. Lemon curd
  8. Place sugar and lemon zest into mixing bowl and mill 10 sec/speed 8.

  9. Add lemon juice, butter, eggs and egg yolk and beat 21 min/90C/speed 3.

  10. Strain mixture through a fine-meshed sieve into a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until set. Thoroughly clean and dry mixing bowl.

  11. Raspberry curd
  12. Place sugar and raspberries into mixing bowl and mill 10 sec/speed 8.

  13. Add lime or orange juice, butter, eggs and egg yolk into mixing bowl and beat  21 min/90C/speed 3.

  14. Strain mixture through a fine-meshed sieve into a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until set.

  15. Assembly
  16. Take tart shell/s and spoon in lemon curd, leaving space in the centre for 1 tablespoon of raspberry curd. Place 1 tablespoon of raspberry curd into the centre of lemon curd and, using a sharp knife or skewer, create designs by drawing the raspberry curd carefully around the lemon curd in circular motions. Place tart/s back into refrigerator to re-set if required before serving.

    The lemon curd was fantastic bUt the raspberry one remained too runny. The pastry shell was pretty average too.

  • Very nice! Our raspberry curd

    Very nice! Our raspberry curd wasn't as vibrant as the photo suggest, but was beautifully tasty. We made mini-tarts, and the intensity of the curds suited them well (wouldn't want a family-sized tart!)

    I have only tried the raspberry curd and it's brilliant, perfect texture. And so EASY, if you've ever stood stirring curd on a stove top! I'm using it to sandwich meringue layers together - yum!
