  1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius (fan-forced).
  2. To make the pastry, place ingredients into a blender and mix until well combined. In a muffin tray (or similar) line individual holes with baking paper, and firmly place pastrymixture on the bottom and sides. Bake in oven for 10-12 minutes, or until pastry has browned. Leave to cool.
  3. To make the filling. Place lemon juice, lemon rind and honey into a pan, and simmer on low heat for 2 minutes. In a bowl, beat eggs well. Slowly add the beaten eggs to simmering filling, stirring vigorously to form a nice smooth texture. Add more honey if desired. Leave to cool slightly.
  4. When pastry has cooled, and the filling has reduced to a warm temperature, spoon the filling into each individual tart.
  5. Place in the fridge until cooled and set. Makes around 4, depending on size.
