Lemon Tartlets

Dainty citrus tarts are a sweet addition to any tea table. These have a buttery shell and a custard-like filling.

Ingredients

    Tart Shells
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1   egg white
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    Filling
  • 2   eggs
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted and cooled
  • 1 large lemon
  •  Powdered sugar (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Spray cups of Deluxe Mini-Muffin Pan with nonstick cooking spray. For tart shells, in Classic Batter Bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg white; blend well. Add flour; mix just until well blended. Using Small Scoop, drop level scoops of dough into muffin cups. Press dough into cups with well-floured Mini-Tart Shaper.

  2. For filling, lightly whisk eggs in Small Batter Bowl. Whisk in sugar and butter. Zest lemon using Zester/Scorer. Finely chop zest to measure 2 teaspoons zest. Add zest and 3 tablespoons lemon juice to Batter Bowl; mix well. Pour filling evenly into tart shells.

  3. Bake 20-22 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Remove pan to Stackable Cooling Rack; cool 5 minutes. Carefully remove tartlets from muffin cups. Cool completely. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving, if desired.

Cook's Tips:

To prevent dough from sticking to the Mini-Tart Shaper, dip it into flour before making each tart shell.

The Quikut Paring Knife is a good tool to use when removing tartlets from the pan. Run the thin, narrow blade around the edge of each tartlet before gently lifting from muffin cup.

For quick and easy garnishing, keep a Flour/Sugar Shaker filled with powdered sugar on hand. It's great for dusting the tops of cakes, bar cookies and pretty tartlets like these.
