    Good
    I love how easy this is but I added a lot more sugar then called for. Just keep adding to taste as it's pretty twangy! I also baked my tart shells without the filling for about 6 minutes first. Also, I think this recipe makes 8 tarts perfectly to much mixture for six.
    It's called a lemon tart people, its supposed to be tart! If you want a sweet desert maybe you should try something that doesn't have lemon as one of the main ingredients. This was easy and tasty.
    I FOLLOWED THE DIRECTIONS TO PERFECTION AND THEY CAME OUT GOD AWFUL..THREW AWAY EVERYTHING.
    What a concept!!! As far as I'm concerned, if my lemon tarts aren't TART, then it's a lemon pie. Easy recipe, total crowd pleaser. Of all the things I've prepared from this site, this one got the most raves. I took some suggestions from the reviews below and added some items from another recipe. Used the pre-pared graham cracker crust pie shell and added blackberries, raspberries and blueberries (w/ a side of cool whip topping). Everyone went back for 3rd and 4th servings.
    These tarts were certainly easy, I will say that for them. Two problems----Way too tart and the frozen tart shells did not get done in the amount of time required for baking. I would probably make them again, just use more sugar and bake them longer and they would be OK.
    how can it be the case that one person follows the recipe and it works fine and another follows the recipe and it's a disaster? This was a simple recipe!
    Tarts were not very sweet--very little sugar (1/2 cup confectioner's sugar) to the amount of lemon juice (2/3 cup). Recipe said to put filling in frozen tart shells. I thawed mine and they were not done even though I cooked the tarts 5 minutes over the recipe cooking time.
    good for small families or people living alone.
    WAY TO TART!!! if you like that sort of thing, this will be fantastic for you.
    Not sweet enough.
    I was so happy to see something like this on tv. It was so easy to make, although I did put to much lemon juice. I will make this again and again. Perfect for deserts when guests are over. Adding mint is a great touch, as always.
    Made these for a Superbowl get-together. Couldn't find frozen tarts, so I used frozen puff pastry shells, baked them at 400 degrees for ten minutes, took off the tops, and filled them. Baked them for 15 more minutes. Increased the sugar to 1 cup. Recipe made way too much filling for 6 tarts. Required some tweaking but they were good.
    I need things that are quick, and tastfull. this was great.
    I couldn't get enough of these! Love em!
    I love Paula but I just could not make the lemon tarts work. Tried several times.
    The lemon flavour was great but I think that the tart shells need to be baked first so they're a little flakier. I'll still make these again, but I'm going to bake the shells for a few minutes first.
    DEFINITELY NOT A KEEPER! I'M REALLY GETTING TIRED OF RECIPES THAT JUST DON'T WORK, & MOST ARE FROM THIS SITE! DIDN'T HAVE FROZEN TART SHELLS @ MARKET, SO I USED THE ALREADY MADE DAIRY CASE KIND & CUT TO FIT TARTLET PANS. LIKE ANOTHER RATER, MY CRUST WAS ALSO RAW, & THE LEMON WAS W-A-Y TOOOOOOOO TART!!! GOOD THING I MADE WHIPPED CREAM, OR WE WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN ABLE TO EAT THEM. COME ON FOOD NETWORK, TEST THESE RECIPES OUT BEFORE YOU PUBLISH THEM!
    I made these for the last 2 dinner parties that I had and they are incredibly easy to make and very good. I made my own whipped cream and flavored it with a touch of triple sec or other citrus liquor. These are definitely a keeper.
    These were very very simple to make. I used the little graham cracker crumb crusts which I think went very well with the lemon. The lemon is a little tart but the whipped cream helped mellow it out a little bit. This very good inexpensive recipe is definately a keeper.
    The frozen tarts that we got might have been part of the problem. After cooking the recipe the tart shells were still somewhat "raw."
     

     
    Wasn't really all that crazy about the filling either .. was too lemony for us, would have like a little more sugar. We may try this again ... cook tarts ahead of filling and add just a bit more sugar for our taste.
    Was very easy to make. When they say TART they mean TART. If your not a fan of lemons you wont like it. If you like lemons you'll love it!
    these are tasty! don't be discouraged if the mixture looks soupy at first like i was, the eggs need to cook to give the mixture consistancy
    Very easy and delicious. My guest asked for the recipe. I couldn't find the frozen tart shells at 3 different stores. I went to Williams Sonoma, bought mini tart pans and bought ready made pie dough which added a little extra work. Will definitely make again.
    Easy....Easy.....Easy..... My husband loved the tart and wanted more.That means a lot!!!!
