Then beat in the eggs one at a time until well mixed and all is smooth. Pour approx 1/2 cup (depending on how big your tart trays are) in each tart and bake at 350 for 20 mins or until edges are just set. Cool on tray for 10 mins and then place in the refrigerator until you are ready to top with whipped cream and serve.

  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar 

In a chilled metal bowl begin by whisking the cream until soft peaks form. Add in the lemon and vanilla extract and powdered sugar and beat on med speed until hard peaks form. Be careful not to overdo it as it will turn to a buttery mess in the blink of an eye!!
