From the Kitchen of Rosi & Kitty - Tarte au Citron

Good morning, todays baking goodness is a classic Tarte au Citron. Its so easy to make that chefs of any age can get involved at all the stages (My chefs are 2 & 3)

Now, i love Mary Berry and she is on a pedestal in my kitchen, however sometimes life is too short to make your own pastry so, sorry Mary, i bought a pre-made sweet pastry base for £1.60!

She's glaring at me now!!

Anyway, so now you only need to make the filling, easy peasy eh!

5 Large free-range eggs
125 ml Double Cream
225g Caster Suger
Finely grated zest and juice of 4 lemons

Pre-heat oven to 160 oc/325 oF/gas 3

Break all the eggs into a bowl and whisk lightly with a wire whisk, add all the other ingredients and transfer into a pouring jug.

Place pasty case onto a tray and slide onto oven rack, now fill your pasty case with the mixture and gently push the rack into the oven.

Bake for 30-35 mins or untill mixture is just set but has a slight wobble to it.

Leave it to cool, remove from tray, place on a pretty plate, icing sugar to dust, make a pot of tea and serve. By this time the sun will be out and you can sit in the garden!

Enjoy x
