  3. Add the flour to the cream cheese and butter and mix to form a dough like mixture.
  4. Now take a scope of the dough mixture about the size of a ten pence piece and place into each mini muffin.
  5. Take a ‘dobber’ as shown in the picture (or use fingers) dip in flour and then press down each dough ball so it forms a cup shape.

  6. Using your fork, prick the base of each dough cup several times. This will stop the centre of the dough cup puffing up during cooking.

  7. Cook the pastry for 12 – 15 minutes, in the centre of the oven. This is called blind baking.
  8. Now add ½ teaspoon of lemon curd to each pastry case.
  9. Place back in the oven for another 5 – 7 minutes, keeping a close watch on them so the lemon curd doesn’t bubble over.
  10. When they have cooled you can crumble over your meringue.

Enjoy…LUSH!
