It's Lemon Season!

For all lemon lovers out there, what else but lemon tarts?

This easy peasy lemon tart is lower in calories compared to most ones made with lemon curd as the lemon layer is made without butter, thanks to this recipe: Remove formatting from selection The only modification I have made is the use of ready-made puff pastry for the base to make things simpler :) Due to the lack of butter, I was at first doubtful if it would taste any good... it turned out just as lemony although not as rich. Great for a quick fuss free dessert.
For easy reference, I will rewrite Gertrude's recipe for the filling here:
2 large eggs
3/4 cup of sugar
2 tbsp of flour
1/4 tsp of salt
2 tsp of lemon zest
1/4 cup for freshly squeezed lemon juice
Bake at 180 Degree Celcius till top and pastry are golden brown. Dust with icing sugar.
