for shortcrust pastry
Pour the flour onto a pastry board, add the butter until you get a dough similar to sand (this method is called sand-blasting).
Add the sugar, lemon peel and eggs, kneading with your hands. Wrap in transparent film and place in the refrigerator for 3 hours.
Once the necessary time has elapsed, roll out part of the dough with a rolling pin, place in a baking tin, pierce the surface with a fork and bake for 20 minutes at 356°F – 180°C.
Let the base of the tart cool down, fill it with a layer of custard and decorate with fresh fruit.
Repeat the operation with smaller moulds that must be filled with custard and decorated with fresh fruit.
