  1. Cook everything at a lower heat and add ingredients one by one. Keep mixing it until it thickens; once it does, lemon curd is ready to go.
  2. Next is the shortbread crust. Add powdered sugar, flour, and butter in a food processor and blend everything together.
  3. Then, use the hands to add it to a tart pan and press it in, use a fork to make tiny holes in the crust to prevent bubbles. Let the crust bake for ten minutes, once it is golden brown, it's ready to be removed.
  4. Take the lemon curd and pour it into the shortbread crust, then let it sit in the fridge for at least four hours.
