Lemon curd is usually made with butter but here is a lighter and faster version of the traditional recipe! The lemon curd might be used in a lemon tart with or without meringue, or you can simply enjoy it with a spoon!

After several experiments with a few recipes and then creating my own, I finally nailed it with this one. Smooth, thick and simple (just like me!). This is going to be added to a Victoria sponge in a few days and I think it will be awesome.

I made this lovely lemon cream, similar to lemon curd, and enjoy it with almost anything: with fresh fruit, shortbread biscuits, scones... there are so many possibilities! This recipe makes enough for two jars, but don't worry - it goes fast.

The pastry for these mini tarts is simply made from butter, cream cheese and flour. After baking and cooling the tartlets, fill with homemade lemon curd and top with flaked almonds or a piece of fruit. You could also top these with meringue if you wanted to achieve mini lemon meringue tarts.
