You can also bake the whole dough first, then let it cool down, cut through and spread the lemon curd on top. Subsequently, place the top half on the top, dust with powdered sugar and enjoy. You can as well cook a vanilla pudding with milk or almond milk, refine it with grated lemon zest and add it to the mixture instead of the lemon curd.
