These lemon curd tarts are a staple dessert at my tea parties. I can make them quickly without even measuring the ingredients using a pastry bag to fill the small shells. The crust remains crunchy for several hours, so I make them early the morning of the tea and then refrigerate them. I also serve these at wedding and baby showers. For variation, you can place 1/4 teaspoon raspberry spread underneath the lemon curd and garnish with a fresh raspberry, omitting the cinnamon. Another variation is to use lime curd instead of lemon, both of which can be found in the baking aisle of the grocery store.

My husband has a killer lemon curd recipe we used for this which we also found on all recipes. Also I hate fake whipped topping like cool whip so instead made homemade whipped cream with a little sugar in it. Lastly I left off the cinnamon and instead took equal parts lemon zest and sugar and mixed them together with a few... and i mean few drops of lemon juice and i sprinkled that on top of the whipped cream. This is the perfect balance of sweet and tart and not too much of either. This is a perfect light delicious spring or summertime dessert. Read More

Recipe Group Selection: 12 April 2014 A nice delicious tart yet sweetened lemon tart. After looking at three stores for lemon curd I finally made my own using 'Microwave Lemon Curd' from AR. It was a great recipe although I had to thicken to use in the phyllo shells. I made these for Easter and they were a hit. Paula thank you for this simple recipe. I already have 2 other occasions that I know I will be making these again. Read More
