Pastry base

Place the dough in the tin along with a sheet of baking paper. Prick the base all over.

Blind bake

Blind bake for approx. 30 mins. in the bottom half of an oven preheated to 200°C. Leave the base to cool.


Bring the water, salt and butter to the boil in a pan. Combine the cornflour with the sugar and egg yolks and add to the boiling liquid, stirring with a whisk. Bring to the boil, stirring constantly, and set the pan aside. Stir in the lemon zest and juice and pour the still-warm filling over the pastry base, leave to cool.

Refrigerate the tart for at least 2 hrs. Dust with icing sugar.

Good to know
Tip: Garnish the tart with 1 organic lemon, finely sliced.
