Zesty Lemon Tarts

Zesty Lemon Tarts

Vanilla and chocolate are love but the obsession with lemon is out of the world good. They say when life gives you lemon make lemonade, I say make these amazing yet simple tarts instead. Made these tarts last year and my obsession with baking with lemons has been increasing ever since, More lemon recipes soon.

This was Last year when I first started making tarts, I didn’t even know what perforated rings were back then. Saw a simple recipe online and made these. Were they perfect, no but were they tasty, oh yay! I Modified the recipe a little bit for amateur bakers like me, hope you have as much fun making these as much as I did. Also, I had just started to do a little bit of plating and this is definitely not a good one, still learning. Happy baking!!!
