1/2cup Lemon juice
1. Place flour, butter and sugar in a food processor and process until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add in egg & vanilla and process in short bursts until the pastry just comes together. Pour out and bring together to form a ball. Flatten the pastry and wrap in plastic. Refrigerate pastry for 15 minutes.

5.To make the lemon filling, add cream, eggs, egg yolks, sugar and lemon juice in a bowl. Whisk to combine.
