Little Lemon Tarts - For Farmers

These little lemon tarts are sure to go down a treat! The bite-sized tarts are sweet and zesty and incredibly moreish. Serve them after a meal or keep a few for a sweet bite on the go (if there’s any left!).
In this recipe, we have included dairy products from our For Farmers range. Every time you buy something from this range, we give money directly to selected farmers to help keep the British farming industry alive.  


  1. 1

    Heat oven to 180°C/160°C fan/Gas 4. Roll out the pastry until it’s about ½ cm thick and press into 8 individual tart tins. Pierce with a fork and place in the freezer for 10 minutes.

  2. 2

    Cover the pastry with parchment paper and fill the tins with pastry weights or baking beans. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove the paper and weights and bake again for another 5 minutes.

  3. 3

    Remove from the oven, then reduce temperature to 140°C/120°C fan/Gas 1.

  4. 4

    In a bowl, whisk together the cream, eggs, egg yolk, sugar and lemon juice, then transfer to a pouring jug.

  5. 5

    Place the tarts on a large baking tray and pour the filling in right to the top. Carefully place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until just set. Cool, then refrigerate to set.

  6. 6

    When ready to serve, remove the tarts from the tins and set on plates. Decorate with icing sugar and berries.
