Place the flour in a large bowl, add sugar, egg, butter, oil and lemon zest. Mix the ingredients together and then knead with your hands to make a smooth dough. Wrap it with cling film and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 200 °C.

Mix ricotta, sugar, eggs, lemon juice and zest in a mixer or with a hand mixer until smooth. Coat 12 tartlet tins with butter. Roll the pastry out on a lightly floured work surface and cut it into 12 pieces. Put the dough in the tartlet tins and then pour in the ricotta cream up to ¾ of the tin. Now bake the tartlets in the preheated oven at 200 °C for 20–25 minutes.

Allow the tartlets to cool down after baking and decorate them with a slice of lemon.
