Simple Summer Berry and Lemon Tartlets



Well we finally got some sunshine today and it's beginning to feel a bit like summer should feel! Yayy!!! I took advantage of the sunshine and whipped up a really quick little dessert for the Toddster and I to enjoy . . .



I'm almost embarassed to call it a recipe . . . they are such a doddle to put together . . .



But it's also nice to know that if you keep some pre-baked tartlet dessert pastry cases in the cupboard . . . along with some double cream in the fridge and some lemon curd . . .



not to mention sweet summer berries . . .



then you can make an impressive dessert lickety split!!
Almost instantaneously actually.
But don't tell anyone . . . let them think you slaved all day to create these tasty little delights!!



It's only a little lie . . . I think you could also fold the lemon curd into thick Greek yogurt if you were wanting to watch the calories a bit more and it would be every bit as scrummy.

Printable Recipe

These are so simple and so tasty. People will think you slaved away for hours to make them. Little do they know . . . you cheated!

1 small punnet of blueberries (about 1 cup)
1 small punnet of raspberries (about 1 cup)
4 individual medium sweet pastry cases (about 3 inches in diameter)
225ml of double cream
3 dessert spoons of lemon curd

Whip the cream until it just begins to mound. Gently swirl the lemon curd throughout. I like to leave streaks of lemon curd. Divide it equally between the four pastry cases. Top with the berries and serve immediately.

I love berries and I love tartlets. In fact, I'm serving this for tea with my lassies this weekend. But it's going to be Greek yoghurt for me. I am definitely counting the calories. Cheerio!
