    This is so tasty. I did use the sweet shortcrust pastry from the BCB and it was perfect. I also only used about 200 gms of sugar.

    Every time I make this, the lemon curd cracks once set. Can anyone tell me why? I'm leaving it in the fridge overnight to set. Aside from this, it's absolutely delicious and easy to make.

    Lovely flavour. Super easy. I only used 200g sugar and could cut down little more. Used about 8 lemons to get my 100g lemon juice. Mine set within an hour. Thanks for sharing.

    Delicious!!

    I love, love, love this recipe! I have made it a few times now and it is just so easy and delicious! I made it again today (at my 6yo's request) as the kids ate their lunch. It's that easy.  I often add the zest of the other lemon to the filling as I love lemony things. The filling has a velvety texture to it that makes it so luxurious. A real winner! Thanks Karen

  • The filling was very tasty

    Submitted by kate.lanham on 9. November 2015 - 00:01.

    The filling was very tasty (maybe a bit too eggy/jelly-like consistency for me, hoped it would be softer but perhaps I could try using less cornflour next time!). My pastry was a strange texture on the base but I think it was actually undercooked & I didn't realise it! Ha...pastry novice here...anyone got tips for how to tell if a pastry base is cooked just by looking/touching?? Thanks!!

    I'm making this now.  Not sure how thick the lemon filling should be when it's finished, also not sure if the base should be cool before adding the filling.  My base has finished cooking at the same time that the filling is finished, so here goes.. Fingers crossed

    Sounds great, if you were making it into a lemon meringue would it be ok to bake it to cook the meringue (I don't have a blowtorch).  Might give it a try tomorrow. Thanks :)

    Submitted by Flaegel on 27. September 2014 - 15:23.

    Had 6 individual pastry cases to use up so I halved the amount of ingredients and it worked a treat! I didn't use the extra egg white and used 10gs of cornflour as the halved amount. Thanks very much - so easy, so delicious. This will be a much-used recipe!
