  • How clever is Loui – great job to get four desserts just from trying this recipe. I was just so pleased to find a nice easy lemon curd recipe to make – so now have a few jars for future use. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe.


  • So after reading this yesterday, my daughter and I made these last night. The lemon filling was delicious – seriously good. The base/casing was yummy although I’m not sure if we did anything wrong as they were a little chewy and a bit more like a biscuit that a pastry. With the left over egg whites – we whipped them up with caster sugar and added some to the top of the tarts, like Lemon meringue pies. The huge amount left over of the egg white we added coconut and made macaroons.
    We only needed about half of the pastry mixture, so the rest I filled with chopped tinned apricots for apricot pies.
    The above recipe also only needs 1 tablespoon of condensed milk so we had an almost full tin left over. We crushed up a packet of chocolate ripple biscuits, added some melted dark chocolate and put in a teaspoon of peppermint essence, smoothed this into a tray, refrigerated it and had a chocolate peppermint slice. All up we made 4 desserts/slices after trying just one recipe.


  • Sounds so yum but I don’t think anyone else in my household would eat them


  • Great recipe but I’ll pass. Stupid citrus allergy.


  • oh I love anything lemon!!


  • Yum Yum Yum! I just love lemon tarts, lemon things… I need to have these.


  • I love lemon! I’m printing this one off right now ! :)


  • I’ve screenshotted this because I’m obsessed with lemon flavoured things!
