Take out of the oven, let it cool and then demold. 

8

Cream the butter till smooth.

10

Add HERSHEY'S Strawberry Flavored SYRUP and lemon juice and whisk well.

11

Zest a lemon into the batter and add one egg yolk and whisk well to avoid splitting the batter.

Cook this mixture in a saucepan on a very slow flame for 15 mins and stir to avoid curdling.

Cook the mixture just before you reach the boiling stage and remove from the flame. 

14

Strain the mixture and let it cool.

Pour the lemon curd into the tart and let it set in the fridge for a couple of hours.
