  • Preheat oven at 180c, bake for 10 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
B. Lemon cheese filling
120g cream cheese, room temperature

  • Pour lemon mixture into each tart shell (90% full), bake at 170c for 10 minutes or until mixture slightly rise and set, done. 
C. Lemon Curd (Recipe reference: Joceline, originally from Alex Goh)
  • Use double boil method, whisk together egg and sugar. Add in lemon juice and zest.
  • Stir until smooth, strain the mixture through a sieve.
  • Stir in butter and cook until curd is thick enough to hold marks of whisk.
