  • For the Crust:
  • 2 cups (240 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (290 g) unsalted butter, cut into small pieces, divided use
  • ½ cup (100 g) granulated sugar
  • To make filling:
  • 4 cups (960 ml) Lemon Curd
  • 6 Tablespoons (50 g) all-purpose flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C.) For the crust, place 1 cup (120 g) of the flour, 1/2 cup of the butter and 1/4 cup (50g) of the sugar into the Vitamix container and secure lid.
  2. Select Variable 6. Pulse quickly 5 times. Remove lid, scrape down the sides of the container and around the blades, then replace the lid and pulse 5 additional times.
  3. Spoon the contents of the Vitamix container into a 13-inch X 9-inch (33 cm X 23 cm) pan.
  4. Repeat the same process with the remaining flour, butter and sugar.
  5. Press the flour mixture into the pan evenly and bake for 20 minutes, until just golden brown. Remove pan and place on a wire rack to cool.
  6. To make the filling, make one batch of Vitamix Lemon Curd (see recipe.)
  7. Add 6 Tablespoons (50g) of flour to the lemon curd. Secure the lid.
  8. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 3. Blend for 15 seconds.
  9. Pour the lemon curd filling onto the hot par-baked crust, and spread into an even layer with an offset spatula.
  10. Bake at 350°F (175°C) for 18-20 minutes or until filling is set. Remove and place on a wire rack, cooling until room temperature before refrigerating.
