Found this at Australian Gourmet Traveller online. This was sort of a "two part" recipe so I split it up - tartlets as one recipe and the ice cream as the other. Here is the ice cream recipe: Blackberry and Honey Ice-Cream. "Recipe by Jonathan Kemble, Star of Greece restaurant (edited by Adelaide Lucas)" Prep time includes chill time for pastry dough.
- 180 g goats curds
- 100 ml pouring cream
- 2 eggs
- 55 g caster sugar
- 1 lemon, finely grated rind and juice only
- icing sugar (For dusting)
- 75 g caster sugar
- 300 g plain flour
- 150 g unsalted butter, coarsely chopped
- 125 ml pouring cream
- 1 egg yolk, whisked
