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!
What are your favorite spring time desserts?
1 – 12 inch pie crust dough (store bought or homemade)
1 cup Meyer Lemon Curd (recipe is here)
Powdered Sugar for dusting
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Roll out pie dough, and cut 4 circles to fit custard cups. Line the dough in the bottom of each of the 4 cups. Generously prick dough with a fork. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until light golden brown. Allow to cool completely.
Once cool, fill each crust with about 1/4 cup of lemon curd. Serve immediately or store in the fridge. Dust with powdered sugar right before serving.
