Strawberry tart - Recommended Recipe!

Strawberry Tart- serves 6, takes 15mins to make and at least 1 hour to chill.

150g digestive biscuits
40g baking margarine
4 tbsp lemon curd
250g strawberries
To decorate, a few fresh mint leaves (optional)


  1. Lightly grease an 18cm loose-bottomed tin and line the base with greaseproof paper.  Bash the biscuits into tiny crumbs (whiz them in a food processor or put them into a plastic bag and bash them with a rolling pin).
  2. Melt the margarine, add to the biscuits and mix together.  Spoon into the tin and press down with the back of the spoon.  Chill for at least 1 hour until hard.
  3. Spoon the lemon curd over the base and carefully spread to cover the surface.
