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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I FOLLOWED THE DIRECTIONS TO PERFECTION AND THEY CAME OUT GOD AWFUL..THREW AWAY EVERYTHING. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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! item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
