"Everyone loves these when I make them. I usually don't have many leftovers. They look fancy, but are super easy to put together. They make a nice light dessert that is nice after a big meal."

"I've made these Lemon Burst Tartlets several times, it is so easy and everyone enjoys them. You can substitute different filling, I like the lemon curd best. I make my own lemon curd, much cheaper and have leftover to store and make other desserts. Watch YouTube for how to."

"This recipe is so good....I made a lemon coconut cake about a month ago that called for home made lemon curd in the recipe . I made it and used it in this recipe also. It was fabulous!! I'll never buy store bought lemon curd again. My grandkids loved these tartlets!!"

"What a simple and delicious recipe. My 9 year old daughter and I prepared these tasty bites for Easter this year, and they were a huge hit. I couldn't find the pre-baked pastry cups, so had to bake them first, which is why I gave this recipe only 4 stars (I had never worked with puff pastry before and it was time consuming). We found the raspberry filling easily (Duncan Hines makes it in our area - Nebraska), but had a hard time finding the lemon curd, so used canned lemon pudding which was thick...would definitely recommend the lemon curd. The raspberry and lemon flavor are so complementary and pretty too."
