Reviews for Lemon Burst Tartlets
"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."
"So easy and delicious! People at our gathering gobbled them up."
"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."
"If you can't find the Lemon Curd in the Jelly section of your store look for it in the baking isle. There are also some great creme curds out there now: banana, coconut and vanilla. They are great in place of the lemon curd in this recipe too"
"The Phyllo tarts come already baked."
"Delicious and simple!"
"This recipe is incredible. I made this for a work party and everyone loved it!!!! Will definitely make this again and is already one of my favorite recipes from this site. This was SUPER easy to make as well."
"Do you cook the phyllo tart shells prior to filling?"
"Do the phyllo tart shells have to be baked first?"
"question- how far in advance could you make this? I would like to prepare a large amount, but don't want the phyllo to get soggy?"
"We used lemon curd only with a raspberry on top. Delish."
"I made these in order to use the beautiful raspberries I just bought. While they are simple to put together they make a lovely presentation. My coworkers absolutely loved them!"
"I used Raspberry pie filling from my Shaw's store, and the frozen shells - already baked! So quick...so easy...and so many compliments! I will DEFINITELY be making these again - I bet that they would be good with blueberries too!!!"
"I used the extra creamy Cool-Whip and rather than buying the Solo pastry filling, I used seedless raspberry jam I already had on hand and these were DE-LISH! So very pretty and so very easy to make - served them for a brunch and everyone loved them!"
"haven't made these YET, but will as soon as possible. Just wanted to mention if you have a Trader Joe's Market they carry lemon curd"
"Loved this!! You can go to your local grocery store, I go to Publix, and ask someone in the bakery for lemon and raspberry filling. Its a small charge and you get the same yummy stuff they use."
"Easy and tastey. You can find the pie filling at Albertsons and Kroger. I also used lemon pie filling for the lemon curd. For the lady who grew raspberries, there are some good pie recipes on this site, with the recipe for filling just in case you cant' find the filling in stores near you. Thanks for the recipe."
"There must be a good raspberry filling recipe out there somewhere!!! With all the raspberry bushes I have I would love to make my own. Tried to find one on the net, but didn't see anything that impressed me."
"Went to the store and was able to get all the ingredients except the raspberry filling so I purchased some seedless raspberry jam. (BTW: The Lemon Curd is in the jam and jelly section)"
"You can find Lemon Curd at Raleys or Nob Hill grocery stores. But I son not know where we can find the raspberry filling. Sure hope someone can tell us because I would really love to make this."
"I couldn't find the lemon curd or the Solo pastry filling in my grocery stores. What could be substituted in their places?"
"Where is the raspberry filling recipe?"
"I took them to a potluck and everyone loved them and wanted the receipe."
"We had these for the 4th of July and they were a hit with everyone. The lemon and the raspberry compliment each other so well-bet you can't eat just one!"
