roll the dough out between two sheets of baking paper to your desired thickness, roughly 3mm. transfer the dough to the tart tin cutting off any excess then prick the base of the tart with a fork a few times. cover the dough with baking paper and add baking weights such a dry rice or baking beads. bake for 15 minutes


carefully remove paper and weights from the tart and return to the oven for a further 10-12 minutes until golden, allow the tart shell to cool


in a mixing bowl combine the eggs, egg yolk, sugar, lemon juice, cream and whisk together. strain the mixture through a sieve then add the zest of a lemon


pour the mixture in and bake for a further 30 minutes
