  4. 4. Switch off the flame and then add the butter and lemon zest, mix it till everything comes together.
  5. 5. Now cover the layer of the lemon curd with a cling film to avoid forming of the skin.

  11. 11. Roll out the dough and cut small tart pieces using a cooking cutter.
  12. 12. Chill them for 30-35 minutes and bake them for 20 min, in a preheated oven at 170℃.
  13. 13. Now cool them. Pour the lemon curd into a piping bag and pipe them into the tarts.
  14. 14. Now decorate with little butter icing or whipped cream or some fruits. I have put a tiny dollop of butter cream and a tiny chocolate chip on top.
  15. 15. The butter should be soft or at room temperature. Whisk it till it is soft.
  16. 16. Add the icing sugar slowly and keep whisking.
