Veruca Salt

Yum! They look so wickedly naughty.

The pastry looks very buttery and rich.


Beautifl tartlets, Reid. I think that using a star tip on your piping bag really created a beautiful look!


These look so good! Thanks for the recipe - I'll have to try making them. How do you think lime would work?


Wow~~ those look so good. I love that crust recipe! I'll have to try it sometime ;)


Hi Veruca Salt,

They are not that naughty, but the pastry is a bit rich. It goes very nicely with the tart lemon curd.

Hi Nic,

Thank you for the compliment. I actually wanted to put more curd in the tartlets, but thought that the tart taste might overwhelm the slightly sweet pastry.

Hi Melissa,

Thank you and you're welcome.

I have actually made these with lime before and they were quite good. If you don't have time to make curd yourself, you can always buy some and just make the pastry. Halving the recipe is no problem.

Hi Michi,

Welcome to my blog!

The crust recipe is very nice although not too flaky. It's a bit sweet and compliments the tart curd quite well.


You're tarts are luscious looking. So perfect. I can't believe you form your crust with your fingers! I use the wooden squisher from Pampered Chef. Life-saver for me during the holidays.


Oh Reid, those look so good! I'm missing lazy summer days already, maybe these would help!


I'll have two please =)

Looks dee-lish. Such a strong yellow colour!


Hi Donna,

Welcome and thanks for the compliment!

I don't know if you mean that in a good way or a bad way, but I'll tell you a secret. When I bake, I do almost everything by hand, including mixing. I think baked goods turn out better that way.

Hi Cathy,

Thank you! Even though it doesn't get too cold here, I'm missing those lazy summer days too! *sigh*

Hi AG,

I wish I could send some over to you! =) I think these were really bright yellow because of all the yolks used in this.

oh I so left a comment before!

They look so sweet Reid . ymmmmmm


Oh Reid,
Definitely in a good way. Your skill and talent are very much appreciated and acknowledged!


Wow, these tarts look really gorgeous, Reid. If only I had an oven to try out your recipe!


Reid, these tartlets look absolutely delicious!


omigosh yr tartlets are so cheery, must be delicious as well!


Hi Clare,

These actually weren't sweet at all. They were actually quite tart with just a bit of sweetness from the crust.

Hi Donna,

OK. *whew* I thought you were going to scold me for using my hands! =)

Hi Julia,

Long time no hear!

Thanks for the compliment. You don't have an oven?! I wouldn't be able to survive without one!

Hi Keiko,

Thank you. =)

They were really delicious. I'd really like to try this recipe with yuzu. I hope I can find some.

Hi babe_kl,

They were actually so bright and summery, and yes, they were delicious. At least that's what everyone who had one told me! =)

clare eats

ahh no Reid I meant sweet as in cute! :)

Tart? That makes them sound even yummier mmmm


Reid, that little "squisher" tool Donna mentions is great for when you have to make tons of tartletts. I wish I had one. On the other hand (no pun intended) using one's hands imparts a quality and flavor (however slight) that can never be duplicated by mechanicals (however simple). I sure would like to taste one of your little sunshine creations!


hi reid, those look divinely scrumptious! i love how your pictures capture the voluptuous tremble of the lemon curd (i am a real lemon tart fan)...also, the cream cheese crust is a lovely lovely touch...


No way! Scold someone who takes so much pride in everything they do? I admire that tremendously. I wish I had the time and the stamina to do it myself! I can be a traditionalist myself, once in a blue moon. lol


Hi Clare,

Got it! =) Thanks!

Hi Jo,

If they could only make it to Northern California. I'm going to try and get some yuzu so I can make this. I'm sure it would be delicious as well.

Hi J,

Thank you so much for you kind words. I love your writing! You make these tarts sound so sexy.

Thanks again!

Hi Donna,

OK..then thank you so much. I thought you were going to scold me for getting my fingers all over everything! =)




Hi Jo,

Yuzu is a really tart citrus fruit that is hard to find in the US. Here's a link:

There may be a tree here in Hawaii, I'm going to have to check it out.


Oh does that sound yummy! I wonder if I would be able to cultivate 1 or 2 back east? I'll have to look into that. I won't have a lot of citrus because I don't know how they would work in a forest, interesting thought though... Anyhow, I'll have a few types of citrus around the house and I want some unusual things, kumquats, pomelos, guess I'll have to had yuzu to my list.


Hi Jo,

Good luck with finding some! It's quite rare, but you may get some fruits from a specialty grocer and try growning it from seed.


Hi there, I'd love to make these tartlets (they look delicious), could you tell me about how many lemons are in 1/2 c. of fresh squeezed juice? Thank you!

    Most of the newer photos on this site are being taken by this camera. I'm still learning how to use it, but I think the photos it takes are amazing. Though the lens I use often varies, many of the photos on this site are taken with a Canon EF 35mm f2.0 lens.

    A majority of the photos on this site were shot using this little camera. It was compact and discreet -- excellent for taking photos under most conditions. Sadly, it has recently died.
