Recipe's preparation

    For the Lemon Filling
  1. 1. Roll the lemons on the bench top with the palm of your hand in order to release more juice. Grate the zest then juice the lemons and add to the Thermomix bowl along with the butter, eggs and sugar. Cook for 7 mins/90/speed 4. Once cooked, it should resemble a sauce like consistency. Pass the mixture through a fine seive into a bowl and cover with clingfilm to avoid a skin forming. Place in the fridge to cool.

     

    2. For the shortcrust pastry, place the flour, butter, salt into the Thermomix bowl and mix 10 sec/speeed 6. Add the water and knead for 1 min/Dough mode until the pastry comes together. Transfer the dough onto a lighly floured bench top and knead into a tight ball and wrap in plastic and place in the fridge for 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 180 C (160 C fanforced). Once the pastry is chilled, take it out of the fridge and roll into a circle with a thickness of about 2mm.  Press into the tart case leaving the edges overhanging to trim after baking (this will ensure the tart case is unaffected by the pastry shrinking). Prick with a fork.

     

    3. Take a sheet of baking paper larger than the tart tin and scrunch it up. This will make it easier to fit into the corners of the tin. Place dried beans or baking balls on top and blind bake for 15 minutes.

     

    4. Remove the baking paper and weights and return to the oven for a further 10 minutes until golden brown. Take the tart out of the oven and allow to cool completely before running a knife around the edge of the tin to remove excess pastry. Carefully lift the tart case out the tin to cool.

     

    5. Once cooled, pour the lemon filling into the centre of the tart allowing it to flow evenly to the edges. Place in the fridge for at least 1 hour before serving.6. Serve with fresh raspberries and/or a dollop of cream.

    Loved it. Accidentally forgot the egg yolk on its own. It didn't make a difference.

    I used zest and juice of 3 largish lemons - next time I'd reduce this to two or as Beck13KK suggested use the juice of 3 with the zest of two, otherwise it's too acidic. Pastry and curd was otherwise delicious! Yum

    Submitted by BecKK13 on 27. December 2016 - 11:51.

    Yum, yum! We loved this curd! Used the TBC sweet shortcrust recipe for individual tarts and filled with this curd; so good.

    I used 3 large lemons but only the rough zest of 2 and milled this with the sugar for 10 sec/speed 9. The juice of these 3 lemons was 125g (approx 150ml).

    We have bantam chooks so those small eggs meant I used 225g of cracked weight (this was 7 of our little eggs) and didn't add an extra yolk because they have a slightly higher yolk to white ratio.

    I poured the curd in the flans the night before they were to be served but if I had time to do it on the day I think the pastry would stay nicer (although it still had a crispness to it) if I didn't do the curd until a few hours prior.

    Thanks for your recipe! tmrc_emoticons.)

    Love this tarty tart.  

    I love my lemon tarts to taste like lemon & this does.  The curd turned out perfectly.  For the pastry I replaced the water with a large egg & replaced some of the flour with sugar as I like the pastry to be a little sweet.  The tart turned out perfectly.  So hard not eating it all in one go.
