After my successful attempt in making custard tart, i had some leftover pastry. So i used that to make lemon curd tart. It turned out really really yummy. The lemon curd was creamy, lemony, buttery and so flavourful. When combined with the flaky pastry it was simply divine.
This tart is so easy to make and it turned out so yum..This is great for parties. It is bite size, so it can be had without any guilt.
Prick the base of the tart with fork so it doesn't puff up. Put this in freezer for 5 to 10 mins.
Remove it from oven, cool it.
