Making a keto lemon curd tart
For this recipe I am assuming that you already have lemon curd as that's another recipe. You may have your own but we have an easy one that was used in this recipe.
The pastry case is made in a food processor. It's as easy as placing all the ingredients below and pressing blitz until you have a dough. Remove the dough from the food processor then split into 6 balls for the small tart cases. Or roll out whole for a large 8 inch tart.
For the low carb sweetener I used allulose but powdered monkfruit or erythritol are good too.
When handling the pastry don't despair if it breaks. Low carb pastry often does not handle as well as traditional pastry. Just fix the edges together and it will still look great.
Baked in 6 silicone 4 ½ inch tart cases, this could easily be made into an larger one. Use an 8 inch tart case and bake.
If you don't like lemon curd, try this recipe with sugar free lime curd instead.
