  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. Place frozen puff pastry sheet on a work surface dusted with flour. Allow to thaw for 2 to 3 minutes. Using a 1 1/2 to 2-inch round cookie or biscuit cutter, cut out 12 round pieces. Place pastry rounds on the prepared baking sheet. Using a slightly smaller round cookie or biscuit cutter, cut out inner circles in each pastry round, leaving them in place. Brush each pastry round with beaten egg.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until browned and puffed, 13 to 15 minutes. Allow to cool completely before filling.
  4. Cut around the small inner circle of each pastry round and gently push it down. Fill each tartlet with lemon curd and top with a blackberry. Dust with confectioners' sugar.

Very tart, but oh so delicious! I'd probably tone down the tartness since my wife won't eat them otherwise.

YUM. Stevie in particular LOVED this and wants it for her birthday! Made napoleons and larger tarts with berries and kiwi for nicer presentation. EASY!

Ok, I don't make pastry dough. I haven't made curd. And I used frozen berrys. But these are crazy easy and they go like hotcakes.

I will give this a 5 star because although mine rose, they were irregular in shape. But from reading other comments, it may have been because I used a glass and did not puncture the edges corre...

I made this and I made the lemon curd to go inside of it. I only had strawberries on hand as my black berries aren't ripe but they work just as good. We really enjoyed it.
