CREAMY LEMON-BERRY TARTLETS
Assuming these tartlets won’t be consumed immediately, you don’t even need to let them thaw before filling them. Just proceed with the recipe and by the time they are eaten they will be perfect. You’ll usually find jarred lemon curd in with the jams and jellies.
1/2 cup creme fraiche
2 tablespoons purchased lemon curd
15 frozen baked phyllo cups
1 cup fresh berries
Powdered sugar, to sprinkle
In a small bowl, whisk together the creme fraiche, lemon curd and cinnamon until slightly thickened. Spoon 1 to 2 teaspoons of the mixture into each phyllo cup. The filling should be lightly mounded in the cups, but not overflowing.
Top each cup with several berries, then arrange the cups on a serving platter. Spoon powdered sugar into a mesh strainer, then hold it over the filled cups and gently tap to dust with sugar. Makes 15 tartlets.
