175 g (7 oz) plain flour

3. Press the pastry crumbs into a 28 cm (11 inch) round, fluted flan tin. Chill for 20-30 minutes then bake blind for 15-20 minutes, until crisp.

4. For the filling, mix the egg yolks and caster sugar together until smooth. Stir in the lemon rind and juice and Carnation Milk. Pour into the pastry case and bake for 30-40 minutes, until just set.

5. Leave to cool completely and chill until ready to serve.

6. To serve, sprinkle the tart with the icing sugar and place under a hot grill, for 2-3 minutes. Watch continuously and turn as necessary, until the sugar browns, without letting it burn.
