Don’t you just love desserts that are deceptively easy to make? These little berry mini tarts are just that! While they may look like you picked them up at the bakery they are actually super simple to make and take less than a half hour start to finish.

Why I love this recipe

  • the 3 ingredient buttery shortbread crust bakes in just 10 minutes
  • using jarred lemon curd makes finishing these easy tarts fast, the hardest part is being patient waiting for the warm crust to cool!
  • fresh berries add the perfect sweet topping to the tart: make a blueberry tart, strawberry tart, or use both like I did
  • these are fancy enough for a special occasion or dinner parties but simple enough for popping into picnic baskets for a day outside

Ingredients

  • powdered sugar
  • all-purpose flour
  • butter
  • lemon curd – in the jelly section at most grocery stores
  • fresh blueberries
  • fresh strawberries

If you don’t have or can’t find pre-made lemon curd you can make your own with this eggless lemon curd recipe on our sister site using just sugar, water, cornstarch, lemon juice, and lemon zest.

What you’ll need: mini tart pans (affiliate link), these have a removable bottom to help you keep the tart shell from breaking.

Step by step

  1. Combine powdered sugar, flour, and butter in a mixer or food processor and blend until uniform.
  2. Press dough in mini tart pan.
  3. Use a fork to poke holes in the bottom of the tart crust.
  4. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.
  5. Allow tarts to cool completely on a wire rack before removing from pans.
  6. Spread lemon curd in a generous layer on the cooled crust of the tart and top with fresh berries.

Variations

You can customize these by using whatever seasonal berries or fruit you have available, fresh raspberries, blackberries, sliced kiwi, and mandarin oranges would also be delicious.  You can also substitute a plain or flavored cream cheese or mascarpone cheese for the lemon curd for a slightly different taste variation.

Serving suggestions

Enjoy these mini tarts for breakfast or as a delicious dessert. They are also great for serving with your favorite brunch recipes like scrambled eggs, fried green tomatoes, and braided danish. You can also top with a little dollop of whipped cream or dusted with powdered sugar if you like.

Storage

Store leftover tarts covered in plastic wrap or in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

  1. I had to laugh when you said where and when you went on your picnic since we were there also! That was our last day of vacation to the Washington, DC area. We decided it was a good day to go to the Botanical Garden and then hang out on the National Mall (with hotdogs from a food truck) before we had to go back to the hotel and get the luggage so we could fly out.

    1. Ohmygoodness Heather! Too funny! My husband is starting to laugh at me because I love, love, love Greek food, particularly gyros and there are SO many food trucks with them around here which is crazy for me-we haven’t lived anywhere with Greek food in about 7 years! I love getting the hot dogs too, I’m becoming a bit of a food truck addict!

      1. Where we live we don’t have food trucks so at first I wasn’t sure what to think. The Lamb Platter was amazing. My family still talks about it.

  2. Yum, those tarts look so good! And I am in love with that picnic bag, if only I had a World Market near me, I’d probably find reasons to shop there all the time too!
