Lemon Tartlets

My mum really loves a proper English Lemon Tart and since we had a jar of Lemon Curd in store that we had to use up; I decided to make Lemon Tartlets. My mum made the filling and I did the pastry. We both did freestyle baking so the recipe is self-created by my mum and me. The whole thing was really spontaneous and  we were surprised how good they turned out. (I’ve never baked a Lemon Tart before) So check the recipe out!

By the way, my mom bought this wooden box the same day at the thrift shop! Isn’t it a beautiful box?! I think it’s perfect for food photography, quite likely you’ll see this box in more pictures hereafter.

Lemon Tartlets

Recipe:

Pastry:

  • 200gr. flour
  • 1/2tbs baking powder
  • 125gr. cold butter
  • 75gr. sugar
  • 1 egg
  • a pinch of salt

Filling:

  • 120gr. Lemon Curd
  • 200gr. crème fraîche
  • 2 eggs
  1. For the pastry: Put all ingredients in a bowl and knead everything together. Preheat the oven to 180°C.  Cut out squares from a baking paper and line a muffin tin out with them. Press the pastry into the tin and cover the little tartlets with baking paper squares as well. Fill them with baking beans and blind-bake for 10-15min. Remove the baking beans and bake for another 5 minutes.
  2. For the filling: Beat up the eggs until light in colour, then add the Lemon Curd and the Creme Fraiche and mix again.
  3. Fill the filling into the tartlets and let them bake for 15 minutes. Let cool and they’re ready to serve.

Enjoy!

All my love
