Steps

1
Done

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F or 180 degrees C.

2
Done

Crust:

Put the biscuits, almonds and melted butter in a bowl.
Mix until all ingredients combine.
Put the crust into a 10 inch (25 cm) tart pan.

3
Done

Spread the crumbs at the bottom to get a nice layer.
Press the crumbs also to the sides.
Put the crust in the fridge while you prepare the lemon curd.

4

Lemon Curd:

Place a pan on the stove at low to medium heat.
Put sugar, eggs, heavy cream, a pinch of salt, lemon zest and lemon juice.
Whisk constantly until the mixture becomes thick (10-13 min).

5
Done

Remove from heat and immediately strain mixture through a sieve.
Make sure the mixture is smooth.
Pour the curd on the crust.
If needed, smooth the surface using a knife or a spatula.

6
Done

Baking:

Bake for approximately 20 min or until the custard is set, but slightly wobbly in the center.

7
Done

Decorating:

Decorate with fresh sliced lemons and/or berries and mint leaves. Dust some powder sugar on top.

8
Done

Serving:

Cool for at least 4 hours before serving. This will allow the tart to set before slicing.

Tip:

If you overbake the cake, there is a chance the curd will crack. If this bothers you, you can also finish the lemon tart with meringue. For instructions see our recipe for Chocolate Cake With Meringue.

10
Done

Optionally, you can serve it with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream only.

11
Done

If you do not want to use heavy cream, you can substitute it with butter. For this recipe, use 50-75 g butter. After you strain mixture through a sieve add the butter and mix constantly until the mixture is smooth.
