This awesome dessert features dainty tarts topped with a tangy, melt-in-the-mouth filling of lemon and curds. Both lemon juice and rind are used to give the filling a sharp lemony taste and nice mouth-feel.
A good dose of butter, whipped cream and eggs are used to give the filling a soft and fluffy consistency that you will surely fall in love with.
A garnish of lemon rind adds to the citrusy mood of the Lemon Curd Tart. You can chill the lemon curd filling and load it into the tarts just before serving to get a cool and refreshing dessert.
