Lemon tart

I made these lemon tarts last week, and I found the recipe at 

I bought the bases from the supermarket, and added a raspberry on top, aren't they gorgeous.  I even amazed myself.

The recipe does say to stir the mixture in a heat proof bowl over simmering water, for 25 minutes.  Who does that.  I did try it.  So after a minute, I poured the water out and popped it into the saucepan and stirred with a wooden spoon for two or maybe three mintues.  It started to set beautifully, they tasted delicious.

I used one of Marthas tips for storing my christmas tree lights (all 300 of them).  I wrapped each set around some cardboard, I'm already looking forward to next christmas when I unwrap them, and how civilised it will be.  Thanks Martha.

Have a fabulous week.xx
