    Things to try for next time: use lemon juice instead of water for the pastry. Cream instead of milk for the filling. Add more lemon juice in the filling. Smile

    I made this for the first time to take to a friends for a BBQ. Got great reviews. Very easy to make. I usually don't bother making pastry but this was so simple. I even made another base - the same as this and filled with caramel for those that don't like lemon. Next time I think I will add a little more lemon - I like a real tart lemon flavour

    Such an amazing dish! Big Smile Used lemons from my tree and it turned out so delicious. second time around I used no sugar in the pastry and 150 grams of brown sugar (milled) in the filling and low fod map flour. Can't taste the difference. Love that it's healthier.

    Submitted by singingsoul on 29. April 2018 - 16:18.

    Wonderful!! Great recipe - I made some adjustments to suit my taste (prefer a bit tarter). I used 3 lemons, 3 whole eggs and decreased the sugar to 200 (I will reduce again next time). Gave hubby a taste as I was pouring into the tart shells.......to be asked if he could have the 'leftovers' when the pastry was filled up! So, a definite winner there. tmrc_emoticons.D

    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.

    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 tmrc_emoticons.)
