Method

Pastry

Place flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and lemon zest in a food processor. Pulse so ingredients are combined well. Add cold butter cubes and pulse repeatedly until mixture is like sand. In separate bowl, whisk together egg, yolk and cream. Add this mixture to food processor ingredients and pulse until mixture forms a ball. Remove from processor and shape into a log about 6cm in diameter. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours. Once set, roll out pastry and cut to fit tartlet or tart shells and rest in refrigerator while preparing filling. Pastry does not have to be blind baked first.

Filling

Beat egg yolks with 150g of sugar until light and fluffy. Beat remaining sugar with softened butter. Combine two mixtures and beat in flour, salt and greengage preserve. Whip egg whites until stiff and fold into mixture. Spoon into prepared tart shells and bake in a preheated 170C oven for 25 minutes for small tartlets and 35 minutes for larger tarts. Cool before dusting with icing sugar. Serve with whipped cream and more preserve.
