Best ever - Lemon Tart


Calling all lemon lovers... calling one.. calling two.. SOLD!


Yes i am SOLD.. honestly whenever i go to any cafe its not the chocolaty kinda dessert that i go for cos i know i can whip up something at home so delicious using the best chocolate there is.. I would usually end up ordering any citric dessert.. or if i do go to Cafe Baviamo.. i will always end up ordering sticky date pudding.. but... u do know that .. right??

Anyway this lemon tart was baked last night.. didnt take that long to prepare and i am so so so so in love with this creamy yummylicous lemon cream.. i tell ya.. nothing beats this one.. not even the one that I would usually have at hmmm lets not compare cos really i still need my lemon fix whenever i go to that cafe.. this lemon cream is so refreshing.. the sweetness is just right.. i might even use this lemon cream recipe for my mac fillings! yummeh!!



So let me gv my thanks to Chelle of Foodagraphy for sharing this super wonderful lemon cream recipe with us.. i decided to use the same shortcrust pastry recipe that i used for my apple crumble pie.. the whole yummylicous lemon cream goes really well with that crunchy crust...



Ingredients
Crust
190g flour
40g caster sugar
1/4 tsp salt
120g butter
1 egg yolk

To prepare the crust
Sift the flour in a big bowl. Add the salt and sugar in the middle.
Add the cold cubed butter and make a crumble with the dough, using the tips of your fingers.
Make a hole in the middle and add in egg yolk. Work the dough with the tips of your fingers. Make a ball with it and place it in plastic wrap. Put in the fridge for a minimum of 2 to 3 hours, if possible.
Roll dough and place it in greased tart mold. Make little holes with a fork and chill in fridge for at least an hour. Cover with aluminium foil. Bake in the preheated oven at 175°C for about 25-30 mins.
Remove the paper and continue to cook for another 10 till crust is brown.
Remove from the oven and let cool on a cooling rack
Once the crust is cold, fill with lemon cream. Level it and chill in fridge overnight, before serving.

Assalam rima,
beside chocolate, i pun suka cake2 or tarts yang berperisa oren & lemon, ..the lemon cream nampak very creamy sudah pasti sedap ni..boleh buat untuk fillings for roti juga kan ..

Anyway, Rima minta izin ambil recipe for Opera cake tu ya..ingin nak cuba ni..pray for me jadi k..hehe..thanks dear..

Rima said...

cik cek
Mari lahhhh kak.. akan ku saji siap dgn blueberry yg penuh hehe

Rima said...

Ayuuuu
GOOD LUCK! remember to read the steps properly ok.. important gelatinenye u tambah kan so that the cheese fillings tu kenyal sikit.. after u dah pour cheese filling u masuk kan kat freezer kejap.. once dah keras sikit u baru letak another layer of jaconbe.. let me know the outcome..

Hi Rima!

Would love to know where you got your rectangular shaped tin to make this lemon tart. Have been asking around for answers but to no avail. Thanks!!

Rima said...

Hi Lea
If ur in Singapore.. u can get it either at Sun Lik or Kitchen Capers.. i saw it in Paris and Barcelona too but the price were expensive..

Oh u can try Lemon Zest at holland V but its a little pricey
