This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie baking challenge fell right around Mother’s Day, allowing me to make something delicious for my mother in law. I would have baked for my mom, but she’s enjoying the tropical sunshine and delicious foods overseas (so jealous!). These Tartest Lemon Tarts were the perfect gift, or “a labor of love” (as my mother in law puts it), making our Mother’s Day gift something she enjoyed.
Changes I made to the original recipe was reducing the amount of filling and dough to make enough tart dough for 3 smaller tarts, since I knew my mother in law wouldn’t be able to finish a whole one. It was the perfect amount that fit nicely in the box I used.
For an additional treat, I made my mother in law some chocolate covered strawberries too. They came out okay and she definitely loved everything. Thanks to Babette of Babette Feasts for choosing this recipe! Be sure to check out how other Tuesday With Dorie bakers did with their tarts!
