The first thing you want to do when making a delicious Lemon Curd Tarts is to prepare the pastry crust. To start off, add two tablespoons of cream, and then crack open an egg. Pour the yolk. Now, you want to stir that quickly, making sure it blends perfectly with the cream.
Now, what this mix will do to the pastry crust, it will hold it together, leaving a smooth texture.
Baking Luscious Lemon Curd Tarts
Take out a large bowl. If you’re bad at measuring, you can have 150 grams of all-purpose flour. Add a 1/4th teaspoon of salt and 1/4th cup of sugar. The salt here will neutralize the taste. Let’s say it adds that much-needed contrast to our recipe.
Now, we’re going to need some cold butter. You can have 140 grams of butter from the fridge. Leave it to room temperature for a minute and then cut it into small pieces. You want to add the pieces to our mix, and then using your hands, try mixing it. It’s more like playing with sand as a child. So, make sure to mix it thoroughly.
Now, you’ll add that cream and egg yolk we mixed earlier. This will add more richness to the pastry crust. Plus, it will be our binding agent. Now, you can use a knife or fork to mix the yolk and cream.
As you mix it, it will turn into a really nice dough. Now, since everything, for now, has been happening in a bowl. So, this recipe is also easy to clean up.
Now let the dough chill. Wrap the dough in butter paper and let it chill in the fridge for about an hour.
Now, take out your dough and check if it’s warmed up as you want it. Next, roll out your dough, ensuring that the size dough perfectly sits on the tart baking plate.
Next, we want the dough in our pan. So, an easy way to do that is to roll the dough around your roller and roll it back on the pan gently.
You want the dough to sit in the pan. Keep the walls thick, as these will provide you support for the pastry crust when you cut it. Check the sides from the inside; you want to make sure that the dough sits perfectly. This is to make sure that the curd spreads evenly on the pan.
Use a knife to level out the dough’s walls around the pan’s edges. Now, put your dough in the freezer.
Then, you want to check if the dough is solid. Dip a fork in and see if the dough is breaking. It should not. Now, put the pan in the oven for 20 minutes. You want to set the temperature to 190 C.
What we’re looking for is a light golden-brown shade of dough.
