I did my first Inspired blueprints sketch. Woo hoo!
It’s a great little community with great sketches. So check it out!
Check out what I made for dessert last night.
It’s a lemon tart served with vanilla ice cream, thick dollop cream and sprinkled with cinnamon.
Here’s the recipe if you want it.
185g Marie or Nice biscuits, processed to fine crumbs
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
90g butter, melted
pure icing sugar, to serve
1 cup caster sugar
125g butter, chopped
1. Lightly grease a loose based flan pan (about 24cm…2 cm deep).
2. Combine biscuit crumbs, cinnamon nutmeg and butter in a bowl. Press into base and sides of prepared pan. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
(It’s easier if you press it to the sides first!!!)
3. Make lemon curd: Finely grate the rind of 1 lemon. Juice all lemons. Whisk eggs and sugar together in a heatproof bowl until well combined. Add lemon rind and 2/3 cup lemon juice, whisking constantly until well combined. Place bowl over saucepan of simmering water (do not allow bowl to touch water!). Cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, for 20 to 25 minutes or until thick and custard like. Do not allow it to boil. Remove from heat and whisk in butter.
4. Pour lemon curd into chilled tart case. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Dust with icing sugar and serve with cream and ice cream (+ cinnamon if you want it)
I’ll be back soon. :0)
