Easy Lemon Tarts

No recipe image available.Delicate, flaky phyllo dough is the simple, yet elegant base for these easy lemon tarts.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 sheets phyllo dough, thawed
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 (8-ounce) jar lemon curd

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Cut each sheet of phyllo in half, so that you have 4 sheets. Brush 1 sheet with butter and sprinkle with sugar. Repeat with remaining sheets, stacking as you go. Using a sharp knife, divide stack into 8 squares. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 3 to 5 minutes, or until golden. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
  3. Stir lemon curd and divide in half. Using one half of the lemon curd, place equal dollops in the center of 4 of the phyllo squares. Place remaining 4 phyllo squares on top, pressing gently to secure. Garnish with remaining lemon curd. Serve immediately.

Makes 4 servings.

Tip: Find phyllo dough in the frozen food section of the grocery store.
