Lemon tarts

It has been a while since I baked something. Most of the time I bake simple cake or cupcakes, but this time I wanted to make something different and decided on lemon tarts.


200 g flour
100 g butter
2 tbsp sugar
1 egg yolk
cold water

3 lemons
2 eggs
125 g sugar
60 g ground almonds
125 ml whipped cream

Preparation method

Preheat the oven to 190°C. Sift the flour into a bowl and add the sugar. Add the butter in little pieces and mash it through the flour and sugar. Add the egg yolk and a little bit of water and knead the mixture until it is a smooth dough. Roll out the dough on a floured surface and line the cake tins with it (I had enough dough for about 6 tins of 9 cm diameter). Line the cake bottoms with baking paper and place baking beans in them. Bake them for about 10 minutes and then remove the baking paper.
Put the juice of the lemons in a bowl and add the eggs, sugar, ground almonds and whipped cream. Whisk the mixture and pour in on the cake bottoms. Bake it for about 20-25 minutes.



  1. I love lemon deserts and this one looks easy but not overly sweet. I haven't baked too many tarts, but I do have a tart pan so I should try this!

    1. This is definitely not overly sweet! They are indeed not very difficult to make and I think they taste really good ;).
