Lemon Tartlets 50 PREP





Indulge in one of our favourite party desserts. No-one ever guesses they’re sugar free as they taste exactly like a lemon tart should taste. Luscious tangy lemon curd encased in a delicate crumb base, it’s always hard to stop at one. Usually 2-3 large lemons are enough to make this and tarts are extra delicious topped with a dollop of double cream. Great way to use up leftover egg yolks after making our Low Carb Bread Rolls!
