Method- Pistachio Sweet Pastry

1.  Cream the butter and sugar together, beating in 1 egg yolk at a time.

2. Mix in the flour, you may have to do this with your hands do put a glove on to stop a sticky mess!

3. Wrap the pastry in clingfilm and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm up.

4. Roll out the pastry large enough to fill the base and sides of your tin. prick all over with a fork and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. We recommend using baking beans on a sheet of  Baking Parchment to properly bake the pastry-base evenly.

5. Whilst the pastry base is baking make the Lemon Filling.

Method- Lemon Filling

1.. Whisk the egg whites together to a frothy mixture.

2. Add the remaining ingredients into the mix and combine thoroughly. 

3. Pour the lemon mixture into the baked pastry case.

4. Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes until the lemon mixture is set with a slight wobble in the centre.

5. Remove from the oven and allow it to cool completely.

6. To decorate add Raspberries and chopped Pistchios.

7. If you have a cooks blow torch you can dust some icing sugar onto the lemon tart and blowtorch it to achieve a crunchy sugar topping similar to Creme Brulee.

8. Serve chilled with single cream.

Top tip

You can decorate half of the tart with Raspberries and pistachios and leave the other half with the melted sugar topping for a pretty decorative finish.
