Lemon Tart

A classic keto sweet – lemony and delicious

  1. Preheat the oven to around 165°C. Grease a tart pan with a removable bottom with 2 teaspoons of the melted butter. Set aside.

  2. Make the tart shell: In a large bowl, combine the almond flour, powdered sweetener, salt, and butter. Use a fork to mix and combine the ingredients into a crumbly dough.

  3. Scrape the dough into the prepared tart pan. Using fingers, a spoon, or the bottom of a dry measuring cup, firmly press the dough into the bottom of the pan and halfway up the sides, making the thickness as even throughout as possible. Use a fork to poke holes all over the bottom of the crust (this prevents it from bubbling up during baking).

  4. Bake the crust until the top and edges are light golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes. Remove the tart crust from the pan and reserve.

  5. Meanwhile, make the lemon curd: Heat a small saucepan with 2-3 cm of water to barely simmering. In a medium heatproof bowl that fits over the rim of the saucepan but doesn’t touch the bottom, whisk together the eggs, egg yolk, powdered sweetener, zest and lemon juice, and ¼ tsp salt. Place over the saucepan of simmering water and whisk continuously just until the mixture suddenly thickens, 6 to 8 minutes. Immediately, remove from heat and whisk in the softened butter. Gently whisk until the curd is creamy and smooth.

  6. Spoon the curd into the prepared crust, spreading it evenly. Refrigerate the tart for 1 hour.

  7. Slice and serve each piece with one strawberry.

  • You can make the crust as thin or thick as you want. I prefer thin but the thicker the more biscuit and buttery the taste will be.
  • It is important to use a fork and create holes in the crust.
  • Don’t be afraid of the process to create the curd. Just ensure that the water is simmering and not boiling.
  • The more lemon you add, the tastier in my opinion!
  • I don’t add stevia by you can do so according to your taste. Just don’t go over-board as we generally don’t recommend sweeteners.
  • Try adding some lemon zest on the top!
