Ingredients

Reduced-fat shortcrust pastry

1¼ individual, (225g)

Sweetened skim condensed milk

200 ml

Egg(s)

1 medium

Fresh lemon rind

1 tsp

Lemon juice

1 tbs

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C or 180°C fan-forced. Using a 6.5cm round cutter, cut 20 rounds from pastry. Line a 12-hole (2 tablespoons/ 40ml capacity) mini muffin tin with pastry rounds. Place a second mini muffin tin over pastry cases. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden and crisp. Remove top tin and turn tart cases onto a wire rack to cool. Repeat with remaining pastry rounds to make 20 tart cases.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk condensed milk, egg, rind and juice in a medium bowl until combined.
  3. Reduce oven to 160˚C or 140˚C fan-forced. Return tart cases to muffin tins. Fill cases with lemon mixture. Bake for 10 minutes or until just set. Set aside in tins to cool. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Notes

TIP: Store tarts in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for up to 1 week. This recipe uses half a 400ml can of condensed milk. You can freeze the remainder in a snap-lock bag for up to 1 month.
