Ingredients

Shortcrust pastry
180g unsalted butter
240g plain flour
pinch salt
3 tbsp water

Filling
3 large lemons
6 eggs
1 1/4 cups castor sugar
200ml cream
1/2 cup strained raspberry puree
icing sugar

Method

Shortcrust pastry

Remove butter from refrigerator 30 minutes before making pastry.

Sieve flour and salt on to workbench. Chop butter into smallish pieces and toss lightly in flour. Lightly rub to combine partly. Make a well in the centre and pour in water. Using a pastry scraper, work paste to a rough heap of buttery lumps of dough. Using the heel of your hand, quickly smear pastry away from you across the workbench. It will combine lightly.

Gather together, then press quickly into a flat cake and dust with a little flour. Wrap pastry in clingwrap and refrigerate for 25-30 minutes. Dust generously with flour when rolling out.

Tart

Line a 24cm, loose-bottomed, deep flan tin with pastry, then bake blind at 200C for 20 minutes. Reset oven to 160C.

Zest and juice lemons. Combine eggs and sugar until well amalgamated, then add zest and juice and stir well. Add cream and raspberry puree and mix well again. Pour into just-baked pastry case and bake for 30-40 minutes until almost set. Cool in tin for at least 30 minutes before serving. Serve dusted with icing sugar and with thick cream.

    This is delicious. Delightful colour. Very lemony with just a hint of raspberry at the end.
