Paleo Fruit Tart with Lemon Curd

By: Kelsey

Ingredients 

Lemon Curd:

  • 3 large eggs
  • cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • ½ cup fresh lemon juice
  • teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup grass-fed ghee, room temperature

Fruit Tart:

  • 3 cups almond flour
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, at room temp
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Fruit:

  • 1 cup chopped strawberries
  • ½ cup blueberries
  • ¼ cup blackberries
  • 1 kiwi, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped mint

Instructions 

Lemon Curd:

  • In a saucepan combine eggs, maple syrup, lemon zest, lemon juice, and salt. Whisk to combine.
  • Place a pan over medium heat and stir until thickened, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and add the ghee.
  • Let it sit for a minute, then whisk it in.
  • Press mixture through a fine mesh strainer over a bowl. Cool and then store in the fridge.

Crust:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl combine crust ingredients and mix until combined.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the ball of dough in the middle.
  • Form dough into an 8 inch round crust. Use a fork to poke a few holes on the crust.
  • Bake crust for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned and then set aside to cool.
  • Once crust is cooled, spoon on the lemon curd (as much as you like) and then top with chopped fruit!

    I don’t have a fine mesh strainer and trying to determine whether I need to buy one.  What is the purpose of the fine mesh strainer? Would the recipe be okay without that step?

  2. How thick should the lemon curd be before cooling it? Im concerned mine isn’t thick enough. Thank you!
