Mini Raspberry Lemon Tart Recipe (1)

For those of you who don’t know, I’m a bit of a lemon FREAK. {Proof:this, this and this.} I really like lemon desserts, especially. I take after my mother, who coincidentally is celebrating her birthday today….Happy Birthday Momma! {And while I’m at it, happy birthday to my older sister Shayna–who has the same birthday as my Mom–and my younger sister Chelsea who celebrated yesterday! I sure love you lovelies!}

Well, the other day I wanted to make some cute little lemon tarts because{1} tarts are cute {2} I like cute things {like tarts…and my husband} {3} I especially like cute things that happen to be lemon {4} I had some extra pie crust laying around from making too big of a batch originally from thispretty little quiche{5} I had a craving for something sweet {6} I have a carb addiction {7} I’m a lemon freak {8} I’m a lemon freak.

So there you have it. To make these, you need to start off with some lemons. I had no lemons in the house so I went out and got approximately twelve thousand….from Costco….in a large bag…..that wasbigger and heavier than my child.

I’m really smart sometimes.

Also, I feel it’s important to stress that I’m a lemon freak. Thank you for understanding.

Anyways, these are super simple and require very few ingredients. The filling consists of egg yolks, lemon zest, lemon juice and sweetened condensed milk. Mix that all together and spoon it evenly between twelve pie crust lined muffin tins and bake.

Once they come out of the oven, let them come to room temperature and then refrigerate. When you’re ready to serve, whip some cream and pipe a border around the edges of the tarts leaving a spot in the middle to fill with berries. Cover the berries with more cream and voila! A tart!

I added a raspberry on top to make it extra purdy. Keep these refrigerated until ready to serve.

These are perfect portions–1 per person is plenty because they are so rich, sweet, creamy and tangy. Hands down one of the best summer desserts ever. EVER. That’s quite the statement I know, but it’s one I completely agree with.

If you’re not into the raspberry thing, check out this straight up lemon cream pie. Almost the identical recipe minus the raspberries.

Please make these soon! You will be glad you did! Also, I might make up some lemon freak t-shirts. I’m sure you’d all buy 17 and support the cause, right? 🙂

Have a great weekend!
