Lemon Tarts

My days are running together a lot lately and I completely thought I had another couple of weeks before Independence day was upon us. Imagine my surprise when I realized we're less than a week away! Normally we'd already have fireworks booming every night around town giving indication that the holiday was on the horizon, but it's been eerily silent so far. Maybe another sign of people being a little more fiscally responsible lately, though my 9 year old nephew did tell me last week that he couldn't wait to spend his $100 savings on fireworks, so I guess I'll be headed over to watch his display this year LOL! But if you are looking for something easy, peasy, lemon squeezy that doesn't involve blowing up your money for your 4th of July plans next week, then I got you covered! Well, Golden Blossom Honey has you covered with this adorable Lemon Tarts recipe
 

I do usually like to make tarts in my large pan, but there's something charming and fun about little finger food desserts that I can't resist, too. I love that these tarts are baked in pre-made tart shells, so all I have to do is mix, fill and bake. This recipe is the epitome of a simple dessert if there ever was one. The batter did look very liquidy after it was mixed, but don't worry about that. The filling will firm up quite well in the oven. You can garnish with cherries or raspberries along side your whipped cream, but if you want to use these for your holiday plans, pop some blueberries on there too for a scrumptious patriotic dessert. These tarts might be bite sized, but trust me when I say you'll get a lot of bang for your buck out of this recipe!
 

Ingredients

1 egg

1/4 cup GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons butter, melted

2 (2.1 ounce) packages frozen mini phyllo shells

Garnish:

1 can aerosol whipped cream

24 maraschino cherries, halved or 24 fresh raspberries

  2. Thank you! My daughter-in-law’s parents are here from China, so they will get to experience their first 4th of July. My husband is busting out the smoker and I’m making strawberry shortcake.

    1. Oooh, what did they think? My neighbor had a Pakistani refugee here a few years back and it was her first time seeing Christmas decorations. She was so excited to turn down our street and see all the lights we had on our house. She was clapping with joy. That story made the 2 days of work worth it!

    1. Super easy with the shells. I'll end up using them for Christmas too for a quick and easy dessert, but will swap out the fruit filling for something a little more festive then.

  8. Oh my goodness, are you even kidding me?? I love lemon anything but bite-sized is best. I bought a whole lemon pie from the bakery and ate one piece. So mad at myself for getting the whole pie because I pretty much wasted it, but that one slice was delicious. Bite-sized is the way to go! These photos are fantastic. Pinning. Happy 4th to you!

    1. I'm like that with Costco and their pumpkin pie. I buy a huge pie and throw most of it away since I'm the only one who eats it here. Will we ever learn? LOL
