  • This tart is delicious,

    This tart is delicious, although i found the pastry to be too wet to roll. It was sticking to the mat & rolling pin. I placed in freezer for 20 minutes in a ball before rolling out & placing in tart dish. I rolled it our as best as I could, but then I had to press into tart dish to blind bake.  The dish I used was not deep enough to take all of the lemon filling. But otherwise quite a nice flavour. Not sure where I went wrong with the pastry. Will try this one again
