How to Get Started
In order to begin with the making, you need to heat the oven to 200C/390F. Blitz the oats using a food processor until it turns into a fine powder. Add the sugar, flour, salt, and butter into a bowl and mix to form a paste.
Now you need to press them into a 24 cm square tin lined with baking paper. Let them bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Once you find them ready pop them out of the oven and set aside to cool.
It is recommended that you prepare the curd while you have laid the biscuits to bake in the oven. For preparing the curd you should have a medium-sized saucepan. Put a little lime juice into the bowl and mix with the cornflour. Beat it to a paste and top over the saucepan containing eggs and sugar.
Mush the raspberries in a food processor, then separate them the juice from the seeds. You can add the juice to a utensil in order to discard the seeds.
Now you need to let the curd cook for a few minutes. Stir with a balloon whisk until the layer becomes thick. Once done, turn off the heat and lay over the oat biscuit layer. Remove the tart back in the over for more 20 minutes or till the curd bubbles away. After it is cooked set it on a wire rack, or set into a fridge prior to cutting into rectangles or the desired shape.
