Lemon Curd

I do like lemon curd, especially in tarts or on toast. Waitrose have a very good soft set lemon curd recipe that you make in the microwave. Otherwise, you can, of course, always rely on Delia.

If you're not in the mood to make it yourself then I highly recommend Sainsbury's Taste the Difference Lemon Curd. One 325g jar and one 375g pack of ready-rolled (roll it out a bit thinner) shortcrust will make 12 tarts. My tip is to keep the oven low so the pastry gets crisp and the curd doesn't get hot enough to bubble up over the edge of the pastry and make the tarts stick to the tin.

these are my Dads fave cake, except he can't help himself and calls them "poorly ear pie" much in the same way that Garibaldis are "dead fly pie" he's still a 1950's school boy at heart, always love you recipe posts
