for a very easy and quick way to prepare small lemon tarts, begin with clearbrook farms mini bite-size sweet tart shells. i purchase these at our local gourmet cooking shop in midland. the pre-baked tart shells are made from shortbread and are perfect for filling with lemon curd.
the lemon curd can also be purchased or home made. i have used both successfully. to decorate the lemon tarts, use blueberries, raspberries, a sliced strawberry, or even just whipped cream.
these very easy lemon tarts will soon become a favorite of your family. clearbrook farms also produces a variety of fruit fillings which are equally tasty. for more information, go to their website at: http://clearbrookfarms.com/
