Preheat oven to 220 degrees
Sift the flour and salt into a mound on a cool surface. Scatter the butter, sugar, vanilla and lemon zest over the flour, then toss the ingredients together using a knife or pastry scraper. Make a hollow in the middle and add the whole egg, yolk and water and toss again.
Gather the dough close to you and, with the heel of your hand, work it away in a quick movement. Keep bringing the dough back to you and working it until it is evenly combined. (Don’t worry if little bits of butter show through, it is important not to overwork the dough).
Once the dough has come together, continue to knead for a minute or so, very lightly. Wrap the pastry in greaseproof paper and chill for 20 minutes (no longer or it will be too difficult to roll out). As the pastry chills, make the lemon curd.
Remove from the fridge and blind bake for 15 minutes.
To make the tart:
On a low heat melt all the curd ingredients slowly, otherwise it will curdle, this should take approximately 8 - 10 minutes.
Turn off the heat and allow the mixture to cool by putting it in another bowl.
Pour the mixture into the pastry case so that the curd is thicker than the base of the pastry. But do not over fill as will bubble over.
Bake in oven at 240C for 5-6 mins
Cool to room temperature then place in fridge for 2 hours

Being a frugal spender, and somebody who shops online a lot, I'm keen to hear from others how they go about cutting through all the daily sales & marketing "BS" from retailers to uncover offers which in reality offer good value. I've grown tired of the charade where retailers try to sell us everything under the sun at an apparently "unbeatable" prices. So I've begun seeking out ways to determine where the best deals are online at any given time. Once I've found a seemingly good deal on something, my basic process afterwards to confirm this is as follow: 1. Run a quick google search to price compare it against what other stores are charging (i.e. ignore RRP and focus on the actual market price). 2. If the price looks competitive, try to find ways to get it for even less (i.e. any coupon codes offering discounts available, do I get any extra discount for signing up to the online store's free newsletter, etc). 3. Check shipping rates, as these can vary wildly for online orders between different retailers (often effecting the overall competitiveness of the product). There's also other techniques I use (like where to look for the best offers in the first place), but this is probably a good starting point for now. What about you?
