Recipe Name: Lemon Tarts  
Category: Desserts


Prep Time Cook Time Serves



For Short crust pastry
Refined flour   60g
Butter   30 g
Salt   1/8 tsp
Castor sugar   1/2 tsp (optional)
Cold water   2 to 3 tsp
For Filling
Egg   1
Butter   10 g
Sugar   1 tbsp
Lemon   1


  • Put the egg along with butter, sugar and lemon juice in a bowl. Mix.
  • Cook over a pan of hot water and keep stirring till mixture thickens to a sauce consistency.
  • Use to fill tarts made from short crust party.
  • To make short crust pastry, sieve flour, salt and sugar if used.
  • Rub in the butter gently using finger tips till the mixture resembles fine bread crumbs. Use minimum handling. (Rub quickly and lightly, lifting mixture, up all the time to incorporate as much cool air as possible.)
  • Add cold water, sprinkling it evenly over the mixture.
  • Mix with a palette knife or a round blade kitchen knife cutting through and pressing together (a knife keeps the pastry cool).
  • Put down the knife and bind the mixture into a smooth dough, with the hand.
  • Place the dough on a lightly floured board or table top
  • Flour the rolling pin lightly and roll the pastry in one direction only without pressing or stretching it.
  • Roll out the pastry 1/4" thick and cut into four rounds using a biscuit cutter. Grease a tart tray and dust with flour. Line it with the pastry rounds.
  • Bake the pastry blind in a hot oven (425 degree F to 450 degree F) for about 10 minutes to set the bottom.
  • Now fill the tarts with the filling and bake further for 10 minutes in moderate oven (350 degree F to 375 degree F).
  • Wait for about 3-4 minutes before removing tarts from the trays as it gives the pastry a chance to set and become more firm and prevents it from sticking to the bottom.
