BAKE THE TART CRUST

LEMON CURD
  • Cut butter on small cubes. Place a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (bain-marie). Add the sugar, lemon zest, freshly squeezed lemon juice, and eggs. Whisk to combine. Cook over medium-low heat for about 15 minutes, whisking constantly. When the mixture reaches 83°C / 181°F, remove from the heat and pour the warm lemon curd through a fine sieve into a bowl. Gradually add the cold butter, while mixing with an electric mixer or immersion blender. The curd has to be silky and smooth. Pour into the prebaked (and cooled) tart shell. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes.
