You’ve got to try these little raspberry lemon tartlets! They are so tiny, yet so big on flavors.

The flaky little tart shells are made of only 3 (THREE!) ingredients and totally fool-proof. I don’t know if I like the flaky crust more, or the silky smooth lemon cream more. But this combination is just spot on.

And do I even need to point out how fresh raspberries add burst of summer into each bite??

Like I said earlier, this recipe is practically fool-proof. You can prepare the crust a day in advance and assemble the dessert right before serving. Disclaimer: I didn’t come up with this genius crust idea. I found it in my KitchenAid mixer booklet a few years back, and have been using it ever since!

For the crust you only need 3 ingredients: cream cheese, butter and flour! That is it!!

Raspberry Lemon Tartlets

These little flaky tart shells filled with silky smooth lemon cream filling and topped with juicy fresh raspberries are completely from scratch with just 6 ingredients.

Yield: 24 tartlets

Ingredients:

For crust:

  • 4oz (110gr) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons (30gr) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup (95gr) all-purpose flour

For filling:

  • 1/4 cup (60ml) heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup (90gr) lemon curd
  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries

Directions:

  1. To make the crust: Beat the cream cheese and butter until fluffy, about a minute. Add flour and continue mixing until smooth dough is formed, 1-2 minutes. Shape the dough into a ball and wrap it in plastic. Refrigerate for 30-60minutes.
  2. Pre-heat oven to 375Β°F (190Β°C).
  3. Cut the chilled dough into 24 equal pieces. Flatten each dough to fit into the mini muffin pan cups and place into each cup. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until nice and golden brown. Cool the tart shells in the pan on wire rack for about 10 minutes, then remove from pan and cool completely.
  4. When ready to serve, whip the heavy cream until hard peaks form. Gently fold in the lemon curd until smooth. Fill the tart shells with the lemon creme and top with fresh raspberries. Serve immediately.

The original recipe for the crust is from KitchenAid stand mixer booklet.

  1. your lemon curd color does not look like the same color in the tartlet picture I like the tartlet color better how do you get it to be that color

    • Linda, you’re right. The colors are different because in this tartlet recipe, lemon curd is mixed with whipped cream, which creates the creamy color. The lemon curd photos are brighter, because it has no cream. Hope this helps.

  2. we can see how they look but has anybody really tried to see if they TASTE good…if don’t matter how they look if they taste bad

    • Linda, totally understand your point. I too wish people would leave a comment when they try the recipe to help others to decide if it’s worth making it. That being said, I never post a bad recipe. And I’d like to think my recipe are delicious. πŸ™‚ Hope you give it a try and if you do, please leave your feedback. Good, bad, and ugly, I can handle them all.
