Recipe's preparation

    Pastry
          1. Place the flour, icing sugar and butter into the TM bowl and mix for 10 seconds/speed 6, or until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
          2. Set dial to closed lid position and add egg yolk and water.  Knead for 30 seconds/interval speed, or until the dough just comes together. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and form into a ball. Flatten into a disc, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
          3. Roll the pastry out to 3mm thick and place into a lightly greased 24cm loose-bottomed flan tin. Trim the excess pastry, prick the base with a fork and  refrigerate for 15 minutes. 
          4. Preheat oven to 190 degrees.
          5. Line the pastry case with non-stick baking paper and fill with baking weights or uncooked rice. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove the paper and weights and bake for a further 10 minutes or until light and golden. Allow to cool. Reduce oven to 170 degrees.
  1. Filling
    1. Place all the ingredients into TM bowl and mix for 10 seconds/speed 6. Stand 5 minutes.

  • I'm not much of a cook and didn't understand some...

    Submitted by Yatesh on 10. June 2021 - 06:48.

    I'm not much of a cook and didn't understand some of the instructions. I didn't know what closed lid position meant. I ended up using the dough function. I wasn't sure what flatten it in to a disc meant, I assume just flatten the ball slightly.

    i also was confused about whether I needed to take the pastry case out of the tin before filling it. Is there any reason why I could not just cook the whole thing in a china/ceramic flan dish?


    It didn't set properly, so I am assuming I will need to cook it longer next time. A nice recipe. Thank you.

    I made this tart today after making the Thermomix Lemon and Lime Marmalade recipe. When I served I spread a light layer of the marmalade over the tart before cutting it. It really added a flavour hit. Will definitely do again.

    Submitted by jancee on 14. July 2019 - 13:39.

    This recipe is just about perfect! The only thing I will do next time is leave the baking weights in for 15 mins (instead of 10 as my base started to rise) then continue baking for 5 mins. Perfect quantities for pastry and filling. Served with blueberries coulis from the EDC and whipped cream!

  • Lemon and lime tart - This

    Submitted by Leaps on 12. September 2016 - 14:13.

    Lemon and lime tart - This tart is a winner! The pastry is perfect and the filling is not too sweet and not too tart. I used 2 tablespoons of cold water in the pastry and cooked the tart for 35 minutes. This tart will be on the menu for Xmas day. Five stars! Thanks for sharing!

    Update: As a special Father's Day request, I added a meringue layer to this tart. I used the meringue part of the lemon meringue pie recipe from the EDC. I cooked the tart as usual for 35 minutes at 170 degrees C, then I added the meringue layer and cooked for a further 5 minutes at 200 degrees C, I then allowed the tart to cool then refridgerated - perfect! Loved by all!

  • Hi Caroline - I made this

    Submitted by Leaneka on 5. April 2016 - 16:24.

    Hi Caroline - I made this tart for a birthday lunch today and it was AMAZING.  Lovely flavour and gorgeous texture.  Pastry was brilliant although I had to do two lots (the first pie crust broke up as I tipped the blind baking beads out - won't do that again!).  That was a heart stopping moment because I'd just used the last of the butter.  Thank goodness for Thermie; was able to make more butter in minutes and get myself back on track.  And, a special thank you for including the weight of lemon and lime juice needed.  If I'd used the '2 lemons and 1 lime' it could've been a disaster - I ended up having to juice 5 lemons (80 g) and 1-1/2 limes (40 g) to reach the stipulated 120 g.  

    I served the tart with Blueberry Coulis (Everyday Cookbook) and double cream and everyone wished they had space for seconds.  Thank you for this brilliant recipe.  It's my 'go to' from hereon in ... Leaneka

    Submitted by Ekparker1978 on 19. January 2015 - 13:01.

    This was a great recipe for my first try on a lemon tart. The pastry worked out beautifully but I think the filling was a little loose in the centre and had a slight eggy taste, however I think with an extra 10 min in my oven and it would be perfect.

    Submitted by pickled_cumquat on 30. August 2014 - 23:59.

    My first ever Lemon tart & it was a hit! My pastry was a little dry I thought even adding the right amount if water & it did crack a little when taking it out of the fridge before I rolled it out, but it was easy enough to patch the areas. Served it with the vanilla bean icecream as recommended yummo!

  • This was my first ever Lemon

    Submitted by A Warman on 9. February 2014 - 07:58.

    This was my first ever Lemon Tart attempt and it was a big hit with my 5 taste testers! I sprinkled some sugar on top and finished it off with a blow torch to brown it off. I used a rectangular tin so had enough pastry and filling to make a couple of individual tarts too. Will definitely be making it again but going to cheat next time and see how it works with ready made pastry (only to save time - the pastry in the recipe is delicious!) Thanks for sharing tmrc_emoticons.)

    Cooked yesterday for a get together with my best friends. Was in a rush so didn't rest the dough, let it cool for the minimum time before filling with the lemon mixture - no problems occurred by rushing through the steps luckily. Very nice served with lemon meringue ice cream and double cream.

    This was scrumptious! I don't know why but my pastry didn't work very well and wouldn't roll out without breaking when I tried to pick it up. I ended up having to press it into the pie case which was not a big deal and it still turned out delicious. I will definitely make this again!
