I made this this morning! Wanted to bake last night, but I was too tired after making some macaron shells. The preparation was very simple, make the tart base and then blitz the cheese filling and there you go. The pictures were snapped at around 8 am, just before I left for work!
Sweet Shortcrust Pastry
1 1/2 cup APF sifted, I didn't
125g cold butter chopped
1/2 cup icing sugar
3 yolks, yikes!
2 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp iced water, I didn't add
Method, this is how I did this morning! Didn't read the instructions, hehe!
Rub butter with flour until crumbs were formed. Add icing sugar. Rub in the yolks one by one and vanilla and lightly knead to form a dough. I pressed the dough into my tart tin, and let in chill in the fridge while I get my shower, haha! I heated my oven at 170C.
When ready, stick the tart in the oven and turn on the timer for 25 minutes....and I went to get ready to go to work, as in get Muhammad and Hajar into their acts and wait at the living hall.
Lemon Cheese Filling
227g cream cheese
396 condensed milk
zest of one lemon
80ml lemon juice, I used juice of one lemon
1 tsp vanilla extract
Blitz all the ingredients in afood processor or a mixer, I used my mixer.
By this time, the tart base was already cool, so I poured on the base and scattered blueberries on them....took a slice to office, the reast are happilly chilling themselves in the fridge!
This recipe was a mix and match recipes that I found in Joy of Baking! tq! and Voilla!
Enjoy enjoy enjoy...in the mean time I have some decisions to make, see you!
