One of the desserts I love eating at the end of a meal is the Lemon Tart.
Fresh and delicate it is the perfect recipe to be prepared during these spring days, because lemon taste prepares us for the good season, summer :-) I think saying it is a quick and delicious tart isn't exaggerated, its recipe has been sent by Maria Teresa from Cagliari.
Moreover it is milk-free, it's perfect for those who are lactose intolerant. Preparing the Lemon Tart with Thermomix is very easy :-) It is the present you can take when you are invited to some friends: you'll make a success for sure because I think everybody will like it! ;-)
As a matter of fact the Lemon tart combines the deliciousness of short pastry with the delicate and mouth-watering aroma of lemon custard, a mix that will make children happy too.
I love tarts that's why I also suggest you try these recipes: the Jam Tart, the Sweet Ricotta Cheese and Custard Tart with Chocolate, the delicious Strawberry Tart with Lemon Custard and finally the Amaretti and Peach Tart.

How to prepare the Lemon Tart
Prepare the custard:
Put sugar and the lemon zest in the bowl. 20 Sec. Speed 7.
Add the other ingredients. 7 Min. 90°C Speed 4.
Remove the custard from the thermomix bowl pouring it in another bowl and let it get cold.
Prepare the pastry:
Put the lemon zest in the bowl with a little bit of flour to help the process.
Add the other ingredients and mix 30-40 Sec. Speed 7.
The pastry will be slightly softer than a normal short pastry.
Roll it out in the baking ban letting the pastry reach the edges. Leave a bit of pastry for the final decoration.
Pour the lemon custard (cold) inside it and cover (if you like) with some pastry strips.
Bake into pre-heated oven at 180°C for 30 Min.
When cold, spread the Lemon Tart surface with some icing sugar.
