Ingredients :
  • CROSTATA DOUGH
  • 1 3/4 cups flour (228 grams)
  • 1 pinch salt*
  • 1/2 cup sugar (100 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg room temperature
  • 1 egg yolk room temperature
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons butter (room temperature) (125 grams)
  • *I use salted butter, if you use unsalted then add 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  • LEMON PASTRY CREAM
  • 3/4 cup milk (180 grams)
  • 3/4 cup cream whipping/whole cream (165 grams)
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup sugar (100 grams)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons flour
  • peel from 1 or 2 lemons no white part



Instructions :
  • LEMON PASTRY CREAM
  • In a medium pot, heat over low the milk, cream and lemon rind, until very hot but do not boil. Remove from heat and let cool to warm.
  • In a medium pot add yolks and sugar, whisk together until combined, then add flour and vanilla, place pot over low heat, pour the warm milk/cream through a sieve to remove the lemon rind (disgard), whisk continuously until thickened. Remove to a glass bowl, cover with plastic wrap (make sure wrap touches the cream mixture and refrigerate approximately 1 hour or until thickened.
  • CROSTATA DOUGH
  • In a large bowl whisk together flour, salt, sugar and baking powder, make a well in the centre and add egg, egg yolk and butter (cubed), mix together (you can also use a food processor, pulse until dough just starts to come together), remove dough to a lightly floured flat surface and knead until it becomes a soft dough, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Pre-heat oven to 350° (180° celsius) Grease and flour 12 medium muffin tins.
  • PUTTING IT TOGETHER
  • Remove dough from fridge, on a lightly floured surface knead a few times to soften it up. Roll to 1/8" thickness (or a little thicker if you prefer), cut out circles (approximately 3 1/2 inch / 8 1/2 cm) and fit to muffin pan. Prick the bottom of the tart with the end of a fork and then fill almost to the top with Pastry Cream.
  • Wet the rim of each tart with a little water top with another cut out circle, cut with a knife to remove excess dough and seal with fingers. (seals better with fingers lightly dipped in water). When complete, in a small bowl mix together 1 egg and 3 teaspoons cream (or milk), brush the top of each muffin tart and bake for approximately 30-40 minutes. Let cool then dust with icing/powdered sugar. Enjoy!
