Lemon Custard:
Simmer a pot of water on the stove.
Add a heat resistant mixing bowl over simmering water.
Add 4 eggs, 3/4 cup castor sugar, 1/3 cup of lemon juice.
Whisk until the mixture thickens.
Once thickened, remove from heat and add 4 tbsp butter at room temperature and 1 tbsp lemon zest.
Stir until all combined.
Place in fridge covered in cling wrap to prevent a skin forming and allow to cool.

Preheat oven to 180 C and grease a mini muffin tin or other suitable tart mould.
Roll out 1 roll of puff pastry and cut out dough with cookie cutters to fit the mould or muffin tin.
Prick with a fork and bake for 10 minutes until golden brown.
Remove and let cool.
Sprinkle with icing sugar, add cooled custard to tarts and decorate as desired.
