Limited Ingredient Lemon Tarts (makes three 4 inch tarts)

For the crust you’ll need…

  • 1.5 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 7 tablespoons of butter

For the filling you’ll need…


To make the crust, melt the butter and combine with graham cracker crumbs (we used a food processor). It should create a wet sand consistency. Form into molds making sure that the surface is flat and consistent all the way around. Place in freezer for 1-2 hours in order to set the crust.

To make the filling, combine the lemon curd and whipped topping. The whipped topping creates a more firm filling. Fill the crusts to the top with filling and smooth out the tops using the back of a spoon.

Add fruit toppings and other garnish of your choice.
