Candied Lemon Tarts

If you are a lemon dessert fan, you don’t want to miss out on this easy lemon tart recipe with a shortbread crust. I made this last week for some friends and it was a huge hit, so much so that I’ve been asked to make it again.

What are friends for, but to eat, laugh and have fun. Okay, so maybe we do a little more eating than we should, and especially lately since I’m pregnant. I swear those around me have gained weight along with me. But you know what that means—we all get to sweat it out together.

Yep, in just a few weeks, I’ll be reverting back to moderation and will have to push aside all this excess eating. Totally sucks. Until then, stretch pants rule, second servings are standard and third helpings are always welcomed.

    Oh those tarts look divine! I love lemon filling – bars, pies, tarts – they’re all so fresh, vibrant, and satisfying. So pretty, too!

    Love the styling on these Naomi! Can’t believe its almost baby time. I used to joke with a friend how we wanted to be pregnant just to get away with eating more food not so much to have another kid! And yes, stretch pants rule during pregnancy!
