I have been wanting to make something like this for quite some time now, and a work party finally gave me the opportunity. I’ll admit these were somewhat time consuming, but I enjoyed every minute of it. For some reason “slaving away in the kitchen” doesn’t really seem like work me, it’s too much fun.
These tarts are made with sweet tart dough, lemon curd, whipped cream, fresh berries and mint.
And they are delicious! And super pretty too. I’ll definitely be making more of these during the warmer months when fresh fruit is abundant. The fresh berries and the fresh lemon juice really made these tarts stand out. You really can’t ask for fresher flavors.
Oh, and by the way I love lemon curd. You can use it for so many things- fillings for cakes, pies, tarts, as a topper for biscuits and scones. Or you can eat with straight with a spoon like I do.
I then piped the filling into the baked tart shells and topped with fresh berries and mint. And voila!
