[Image: lemon.tart.250.jpg]

225g plain flour
115g butter, diced
Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
1 small egg
2 tbsp lemon juice
25g Fruisana Fruit Sugar

Lemon filling
5 large eggs
115g Fruisana Fruit Sugar
Grated zest and juice from 4 lemons
300ml double cream

1. Sift the flour into a bowl. Rub the butter into the flour until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the lemon zest.
2. Beat in the egg and Fruisana with the lemon juice, to form a soft dough. It may be necessary to add another tablespoon of lemon juice. Wrap the pastry in greaseproof paper and allow to cool in the fridge for 30 minutes before using.
3. Remove pastry from the fridge and allow to come to room temperature before rolling out to fit a 23cm (9 inch) loose-bottomed, deep flan tin. Place tin on baking sheet, add a piece of greaseproof paper and baking beans and bake blind in the oven at electric 190°C, fan 170°C or gas mark 5 for 15 minutes.
4. Remove from the oven and then remove baking beans and greaseproof paper.

7. Allow to cool, then chill completely before serving.
