Lemon Berry Tartlets

Standard

I’ve been making this recipe for years, now.  It’s one of those desserts that look very fancy and tastes great, yet takes hardly any effort to create.  Though you can make it in a traditional tart pan, there is something so fun about making mini ones! I made these individual portions in a muffin tin, so that they would be easy to eat with your fingers.  The crust is the cookie tart pastry which I also used for the strawberry tart.
