This recipes is a variation of the old classis lemon tart. Here, the lemon custard is infused with bay leaves, giving it a heady scent. The custard is baked in a very low oven; if the oven is too hot the custard will curdle. Check after 40 minutes - the centers should be almost set but still move a little - they will firm up as they cool.
