These Easy Lemon Tartlets are the perfect summer dessert, creamy, zesty and only takes a few minutes to whip up.
Summer is nearly in full swing and I’m so ready for it! Absolutely nothing beats a Cape Town summer. It’s as if the whole city wakes up. Everyone is either at the beach or having picnics in the Winelands. I don’t think I’ll ever get used to how beautiful and vibrant this place is, especially in summer!
With that being said it gets insanely hot here so I’m already craving fresh fruits and zesty flavours! Naturally, I go for lemon everything! It’s just so refreshing on a hot summers day! These Easy Lemon Tartlets are exactly that! Tangy and refreshing and oh so creamy. I make them whenever I’m craving something a little sweet or if I know I’m having guests over but won’t have the time to whip up something elaborate.
They take only a couple of minutes to make and really only require a few ingredients. I used Lancewood’s Creamed Cottage Cheese, which is my new obsession because it’s not too rich but still creamy. Then all you need with that is a little melted butter and ginger biscuits for the crust. You could easily use any other kind of biscuit, but I love the lemon and ginger flavours together. Then for the filling, I whisked Lancewood Creamed Cottage Cheese, freshly squeezed lemon juice, lemon zest and icing sugar together. Poured the filling over the ginger crust and popped it into the fridge for a few hours. Easy right?
