Pre-cook the pastry at 160°C.
Mix the egg yolks with the sugar, flour and cornstarch in a bowl.
Finely peel the lemon and boil the milk with the zest.
Off the heat, remove the peel, pour the hot milk mixture into the bowl. Mix with a whisk. It will still be a liquid.
Squeeze the lemon into the bowl having removed the seeds first. Add sugar if necessary.
Remove the pastry from the oven. Pour in the lemon cream. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes at 160°C.
Beat the egg whites until stiff with sugar (50 grams for 1 egg white) and spread on top of the baked tart. Brown under the grill as little or as crispy as you like.
