Mix flour and all ingredients up to and including salt in a bowl. Add the butter and rub together using your hands to form an even, crumbly mixture. Add the egg white, mix quickly to form a soft dough; do not knead. Flatten the dough, cover and chill for approx. 30 mins.

Base

To bake

As soon as the mixture thickens, remove the pan from the heat, continue to whisk for approx. 2 mins., strain through a sieve, allow to cool slightly. Puree the basil and lime juice (approx. 100 ml), mix into the crème, pour over the base of the tart, leave to cool. Cover the tart and chill for at least 4 hrs.
