While lemon curd is a delicious addition to a number of recipes, rarely does it take center stage as the primary ingredient. In this recipe, it does just that, with a slight modification to the process of making the lemon curd. When cooking the lemon curd, be sure to cook it longer than usual to ensure it sets firm.

Lemon Curd Tart Recipe

Tart Shell Ingredients

  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 sticks butter, cut into small cubes
  • 6 tablespoons cold water

Ingredients

  • 6 cups lemon curd, cooked long (see details in method)

Lemon Curd Tart RecipeDirections

  1. In a bowl, combine the flour and salt, then cut the butter into the dry mixture.
  2. Add in the cold water and form the dough (more water may be necessary depending on a number of factors such as humidity, age of flour, etc.). Do not excessively handle the dough.
  3. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  4. Remove dough from refrigerator and unwrap. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough to approximately 1/4 inch thickness.
  5. Gently press the dough into the tart mold, then bake the dough in the mold at 350°F until golden brown (also known as blind baking, without any filling), about 15-22 minutes. Remove the baked tart shell in the mold from the oven.
  6. After the shell has cooled completely, begin to prepare the lemon curd as directed in the recipe. When cooking the lemon curd, leave it on the heat longer than directed to create a firmer curd that will not run when cold.
  7. After the lemon curd is prepared, allow it to cool briefly before pouring it into the shell. Refrigerate until cold and firm, then serve. Top with whipped cream if desired.
