Meyer Lemon Tart


Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a great weekend.  Ours went way too fast!  We got to see 2 different groups of friends, and had so much fun with both of them.  We went to Costco and Ikea; which always means you spend too much money.  Not the best idea to go to both in the same day!  Now to a week of relaxing and hanging out with my favorite 6 year old, who is on spring break.

It was gorgeous weather here this weekend, spring is definitely in the air.  These tarts are perfect way to welcome spring.  I used the last of my Meyer Lemon Curd to fill them, and they were delicious.  A little dusting of powdered sugar was all they needed.  Plus they are mini individual servings, which are always so much fun!  I cheated and used store bought pie dough, but you could go all out and make your own.  The store bought stuff is just so easy!  I used my creme brulee dishes, and they were the perfect size.  I love that you can make 2 or 8 of these, with very little extra work.  Meyer Lemons were on sale when I went grocery shopping yesterday, I was so tempted to buy another bag!
