la la la lemon tarte… licious!!!! a delicious and simple made lemon curd tarte makes me happy, makes me sing and tastes absolutely delicious! I love when they do not taste too sweet but really refreshing on a sunny spring day like the other couple days in Vienna. I don´t know what else to say… topped  with any berries you can think of or even without… perfect!

This is what you will need…

…for the pie crust:

  • 230g flour
  • a pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • 150g butter
  • 3-4 tbs. cold water

Combine flour, salt, sugar and butter in an kitchen mixer or use your hands. Knead butter into flour mixture until no butter lumps remain. Add cold water and knead/mix until dough is smooth. Roll out on a flour dusted surface and lay into pie pan.  Bake for approximately 20 minutes, at oven temperature 175°.

…for the lemon curd:

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3 eggs
  • 100g sugar
  • 180 ml lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. lemon zest
  • 185g butter

Combine all ingredients in a small pot. Heat over medium temperature while you constantly stir the curd. Stir until egg yolks and the curd´s texture have thickened. Remove from stove and sift through a strainer. Fill baked pie crust with curd and let cool for a couple of hours. It tastes best the next day! Top with berry as you prefer and serve..

enjoy,

xx
