    It was great to find a recipe that I have all the ingredients and so easy to make. Kids loved it too. (Adult kidsBig Smile)

    Great recipe, I love a really tangy lemon so increased lemon juice to 150ml and zest of 1.5 lemons.
    They turned out delicious. Another to add to my favourites.

    The lemon curd was yummy. A little disappointed with the base as it was rubbery but will try this again. Thanks

    Lemony Goodness. This is delicious. The perfect amount of tart for me. Will be making again 🍋

    Absolute winner. Made this for a social event and was the first to go. Followed the recipe just a little less sugar. Will be making this again and again. Thank you 😊

    Is all that sugar needed or can i reduce it

  • 18. August 2016 - 19:56

    Super easy, very nice. I'd add more lemon rind next time as I like very tart. 

    I followed recipe. Didn't let base cool when I poured  top layer on. Was very thin but came out perfect. Also didnt wash bowl in between making base and top  

    Thanks for sharing.

    Turned out perfect, i halved the sugar in both steps and it really was delicious. Will be making this again and again  tmrc_emoticons.)

    Not a winner for me. I made this and it was a disaster ! I've used the base recipe and would recommend that. But ended up making the base in a round low tart dish and filled it with lemon butter.
