January 18, 2021Teresa

Lemon Tarts are some of our favorite things. 🙂 Truly, these delicious cookies are so addictive you won’t be able to stop after just one. The filling is sweet, almost decadent, and just the right texture. I assure you, one bite of these and you will want to bake these over and over again.

John finished up his Day Neuro program (for severe stroke) the week before Thanksgiving. The day before his final day, they asked him to give a speech presentation. I made up a huge batch of these Lemon Tarts to give out to all of the staff and patients that listened to his presentation. I ate more than a few of these before they even got to Day Neuro. I’m glad I had a purpose for them or I would have eaten ALL of them. No kidding.

Lemon Tarts are perfect for those who enjoy lemony desserts. They’re great for tailgating parties, potlucks and certainly for holidays like Christmas Cookie baking or even Mother’s Day. If you have a sweet tooth craving, this lovely dessert will satisfying you totally. 🙂

While I used softened butter, this recipe is actually easier to make with melted butter. Stir to combine or use a pastry blender and cut in butter.

    Just made these lemon tarts and they are delicious. The shortbread bottom and lemon filling are glorious. It helps that they are both my favourites. I halved the recipe and only got about 30 but that’s a good thing because that’s less for me to eat. Thanks for the great recipe 😃
