ingredients

  • Low calorie cooking spray
  • 1 large sheet filo pastry (about 45 x 25cm)
  • 150g ready made, low fat custard
  • Finely grated zest of 1 lime, plus extra to decorate
  • 2 - 3 drops lemon extract
  • 1 level tbsp icing sugar, to dust

For the candied peel:

  • Thinly slice the rind of 1 unwaxed lemon
  • 3 tbsp artifical sweetener

method

  1. Preaheat your oven to 200°C/180°C Fan/Gas 6. Spray a 4 hole yorkshire pudding tin (each hole measuring about 10cm in diameter) with low calorie cooking spray.
  2. For the candied lemon peel, put the slivers of rind in a pan with the sweetner. Pour over just enough cold water to cover and slowly bring to the boil. Cook over a low heat for about 10 minutes, or until translucent. Transfer onto baking paper until ready to use.
  3. Cut the pastry sheet in half, then cut each half into 4 squares spray each piece with low calorie oil spray. Stack 2 pieces on top of each other at different angles and use to line the holes of the tin. Bake in the oven for 8 - 10 minutes until crisp and golden. Leave to cool for 5 minutes.
  4. Put the custard, lime zest and lemon extract in a bowl and stir well. Spoon the custard into the pastry cases and decorate with the extra lime zest. Top each with a few slivers of candied lemon peel and dust over with icing sugar.
