September recipe

Ingredients

Sweet pastry

  • 280g plain flour
  • 140g butter
  • 70g icing sugar
  • 1 egg
  • Zest from 1 lemon

Lemon tart filling

  • 6 lemons – juice & zest
  • 140g butter
  • 500g sugar
  • 8 eggs

Sorbet

  • 263g sugar
  • 360g water
  • 8 sprigs lemon thyme
  • 360g lemon juice

Method

To make the pastry;

  • Mix the flour & icing sugar in a bowl
  • Rub the butter into the flour until crumbly
  • Mix the egg in and if pastry is a little dry, add 1-2tbsp of cold water until it combines together
  • Wrap the dough in cling film & chill for 1 hour

To make the tart filling;

  • Soften the butter to obtain a fluid-like consistency
  • Beat together all the tart ingredients until fully combined

To make the tart;

  • Roll out the pastry in between 2 sheets of greaseproof paper to a thickness of a pound coin, then lift into a tart case
  • Press down gently on the bottom & sides, then trim off any excess pastry
  • Return to fridge to chill again; TIP – chilling the dough before baking will prevent it from shrinking when baked
  • Line the tart with cling film and fill with either rice or flour
  • Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes on 160˚ fan assisted oven
  • Remove the flour/rice & cling film & bake for a further 10 minutes
  • When the pastry is golden brown, add the tart mixture; TIP – pour the mixture when the tart case is in the oven to avoid spillages
  • Bake for a further 35-40 minutes at 140˚ until the tart has a very slight wobble
  • Remove from oven & chill

To make the sorbet;

  • Add all ingredients in a pan & bring to the boil
  • Churn in an ice cream machine until frozen & set

Enjoy!
