Lemon Tart Pie



  • 1 ¼ cup (420g) All Purpose Flour
  • ¼ cup (85g) Sugar
  • ½ tsp (8g) Salt
  • ¼ lb (120g) Unsalted butter cut into cubes
  • 3-5 tbsp. (60ml) Cold water


  • 2 tbsp. (30g) Lemon zest
  • 2 Whole eggs
  • 6 Egg yolks
  • 2 ½ cup (840g) Sugar
  • 2 cup (460ml) Fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 4 tbsp. (60g) Corn starch
  • 1 cup (230ml) Rickard’s Grapefruit Radler (or an additional 230 ml of lemon juice if not using Rickard’s Grapefruit Radler)
  • ½ lbs (225g) Unsalted butter, cut into cubes


  • In a food processor, combine the flour, sugar, and salt. Pulse to combine. Add the cubes of butter and process until combined, about 1-2 minutes. Your dough should resemble coarse meal.
  • Start with 3 tbsp. of water, pulse until combined. If the crust doesn’t hold together add more water, a bit at a time, until it does.
  • Dump the dough into a 4-inch deep, 9-inch wide tart pan with a remove-able bottom (you can also use a pie pan). Starting with the sides, form the crust inside the pan, trying your best to make it all as even as possible.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 3 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Place a sheet of parchment paper inside your tart and fill with pie weights. If you don’t have any, dried beans work great. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until your tart is a light golden brown.
  • Remove from oven, allow to cool slightly. Remove pie weights.
  • Add the lemon zest, lemon juice, beer (or additional lemon juice), sugar, cornstarch, whole eggs and yolks to a bowl and whisk until well combined. Add the lemon mixture to a pan over medium/low heat along with the butter. Whisk until thickened, about 10 minutes. Allow to cool to room temperature.
  • Add the curd to the crust and chill until set, about 4 hours.
