Lemon & Lime Tart

Lemon tart is always a nice way to finish off a meal, and the addition of lime in this tart adds a little extra zing...

300g plain flour
30g icing sugar
150g butter, chopped
1 egg yolk
2-3 tablespoons iced water

5 eggs
140g caster sugar
300ml thickened cream
2 teaspoons finely grated lemon rind
120g lemon and lime juice (2 lemons and 1 lime)

For the pastry:
  1. Place the flour, icing sugar and butter into the TM bowl and mix for 10 seconds/speed 6, or until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  2. Set dial to closed lid position and add egg yolk and water.  Knead for 30 seconds/interval speed, or until the dough just comes together. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and form into a ball. Flatten into a disc, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Roll the pastry out to 3mm thick and place into a lightly greased 24cm loose-bottomed flan tin. Trim the excess pastry, prick the base with a fork and  refrigerate for 15 minutes. 
  4. Preheat oven to 190 degrees.
  5. Line the pastry case with non-stick baking paper and fill with baking weights or uncooked rice. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove the paper and weights and bake for a further 10 minutes or until light and golden. Allow to cool. Reduce oven to 170 degrees.
For the filling:
  1. Place all the ingredients into TM bowl and mix for 10 seconds/speed 6. Stand 5 minutes.
  2. Pour mixture into the prepared pastry case and bake for 25-30 minutes or until just set. Cool and refrigerate until set.
  3. Dust with icing sugar and serve with vanilla bean ice cream.

  1. Hi there,

    Thanks for this recipe, it was exactly what I was hoping to find. I made it this afternoon and it's cooling in the fridge ready to take to a friends house for Sunday lunch.

    Can't wait to see if it tastes as good as it looks.
