Lemon butter tarts, three ways




Thursday I posted my recipe for Lemon Butter. Here are some easy tarts made using that butter. I bought the tart shells ready made from the bakery section in the supermarket, which makes life a lot easier. Heck if you don't want to make the lemon butter, you can even buy that in a jar at the supermarket!


Lemon tarts
This tart is the easiest. Just spoon in some lemon butter and put some whipped cream on top.


Lemon yogurt tart
This one is my favourite. Use half a cup of vanilla yogurt, mix it with half of cup of lemon butter. Spoon into the tart cases and top with mixed berries.


Lemon Butter cheesecakes 
For every 100 grams of cream cheese, add in a good tablespoon of lemon butter. Beat until fluffy. Spoon into tart cases and top with a sliced strawberry. Place a dab of cheesecake mix on top and place a blueberry to top it off.


Fancy wancy for not much effort.

    1. The combo was yum. We don't eat blueberries very much at all, so I did enjoy them :)
