yorkshire curd tart


Originating from Yorkshire, this tart is traditionally made from the fresh curd from milk. It is, however, very difficult to buy from the shops these days, and although you can make your own, I find using cream cheese as a substitute a good cheat that saves the hassle.

Curd tart is essentially a baked cheesecake in pastry, and this version has a lovely light texture like that of lemon mousse.

Preparation Time: 50 minutes
Cooking Time: 35 minutes
Makes: 6 servings

Ingredients
150g plain white flour
2 tbsp icing sugar
100g margarine

1 lemon
1 tbsp Truvia sweetener (or 50g caster sugar)
225g cream cheese
1 tsp rose water
50g raisins
tsp ground nutmeg
