Borges - Lemon tart

Ingredients

  • 200 g Rich Tea biscuits or similar
  • 80 g butter (or substitute)
  • 75 ml Borges Natura walnut drink
  • 150 ml freshly squeezed and strained lemon juice
  • ½ lemon
  • 5 medium eggs
  • 120 g sugar (or substitute)
  • 100 g flour

Step by step

  1. Step 1

    Make the base by mixing the melted butter with the crushed biscuits. Grease a 20 cm diameter tin with butter and press the biscuit mixture over the base. Leave to cool in the fridge until it hardens.

    Mix together the walnut drink, lemon juice, 3 whole eggs and 2 yolks. Add the sugar and sifted flour and stir to make a smooth paste. Add the zest of ½ lemon.

    Pour over the biscuit base and bake for about 35 minutes at 170 °C.

    When it’s cooked, leave to cool for a few hours in the fridge. Top with whipped cream or, if you prefer, make a meringue by mixing the 2 leftover egg whites with sugar and beat to stiff peaks.
