Lyndey Milan's Lemon curd tart

Preparation time
15 mins + 60 mins resting + 15 mins freezing
Cooking time
40-50 mins
Serves
6

INGREDIENTS

Pastry

1 1/3 cup (200g) plain flour

90g icing sugar

90g unsalted butter, diced

1 egg

1 tbsp cold water (optional)

Lemon Curd Filling

4 eggs

1/3 cup (75g) caster sugar

300ml cream

300ml lemon juice (2–3 lemons)

METHOD

1. For the pastry: put the flour and icing sugar into a food processor and very briefly combine. Add the butter and process until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add the egg. When the dough balls together and clings around blade, stop. If this doesn’t happen add a little chilled water until it does. Remove, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least one hour or overnight.

2. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured board and line a high sided 24.5cm flan tin. Press gently into tin and use rolling pin to trim the excess from the perimeter. Prick all over with a fork, including the sides. Place in freezer for at least 15 minutes or until frozen (again overnight is fine). Place in preheated 200°C oven (180ºC fan-forced) and cook for 10–15 minutes until golden brown.

3. For the filling: reduce oven temperature to 170°C. Beat together the eggs and caster sugar until pale. Pour in the cream and finally, the juice. Pour immediately into the prepared pastry base and bake until just set, about 25–30 minutes.

4. Dredge with icing sugar and serve with whipped or thick cream.

Lyndey’s note: this is also delicious with lime juice. You will need about 7 limes.

Our Top 5 Australia Day Recipe and Wine Matching Ideas
Words by Ben Hallinan on 21 Jan 2017
Celebrate Australian wine this year on our national holiday with these great recipe and wine matching ideas from  Selector . Lamb Recipes
Lamb has become synonymous with Australia Day celebrations (due in no small part to a certain successful advertising campaign). This  boneless leg of lamb with a rosemary rub   recipe is the perfect way to add a refined touch to your Australia Day celebrations. The oak, spice and firm tanins of a fine  Coonawarra  or  Margaret River  Cabernet Sauvignon make this variety the classic wine match for a rich lamb dish like this . Alternatively, try one of the increasing range of  alternative varieties  such as Montepulciano or Petit Verdot. Find out more about Petit Verdot in our   recent infographic guide Lamb wine match: Bundaleer Montepulciano 2015 or the Credaro Five Tales Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 Explore our lamb recipes Prawn Recipes
In this country, we are blessed with an abundance of quality seafood. This   Barbecue split prawns with chilli, oregano and olive oil  recipe is an excellent addition to any Australia Day get together. For the perfect wine match, go for a dry white with good acidity such as a fine   Semillon  , Vermentino or  Verdelho. Prawns wine match:  Krinklewood Biodynamic Vineyard Semillon 2009  or the  Tulloch Vineyard Selection Verdelho 2015 Explore our seafood recipes Vegetarian Recipes
