MrsDrWho's Dad really likes lemon and so at tea tonight there were lemon tarts. I cheated and bought the tart cases, frozen. Too many things are happening and I couldn't guarantee nice home made pastry. This is the easiest recipe and it tastes, and looks, pretty fabulous with minimum effort!!
Sometimes I don't want to make enough lemon filling to feed an army, so this is just enough for four people, I think.Very Lemony Tartlets makes 12
- 12 small lemon tart cases or your own!!
- 1 egg
- finely grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
- 1/4 cup caster sugar
- 1 heaped teaspoon of cornflour
- 1 1/2 tablespoons of plain flour
- 40g of melted butter, cooled
Cook the tart cases as per instructions and cool. Set oven to 180*C while you make the filling.
Put all ingredients in a bowl and whisk till combined.
That's it. Make sure there are no lumps of flour.
Fill each tart case almost to the brim and then bake for 10-15 minutes. The filling should be set.
Cool for a few minutes to eat warm with cream and a sifting of icing sugar. Or refrigerate for delayed gratification.
