Lemon Pastel / Pastel De Limon

I have wonderful past-memories of living on Spain's Balearic Islands. Food-wise, this Ibiza custard is one of them ... (Cunejo Aioli is another if anyone cares to pass on the recipe?) NOTE: This wonderful desert separates into two distinct layers as it bakes. Mmmmm ! Fantastico!

    Absolutely fantastic! This is a creamy lemon curd custard, to put it bluntly, and it's heavenly! Sweet, tangy and creamy. Made it according to instructions, but for some reason I did not get the mentioned 2 layers, but it sure was good!
