Buuuuuut…I’m totally not done bombarding you with desserts. Hang in there with me for just one more bit of lemony goodness? And then I promise to give your sweet tooth (and blood sugar) a break with a savory recipe.
Besides, these little tartlets are adorable. You can’t not love an adorable dessert…right? And guess what: They’re totally easy.
You all know I’m not exactly what we would call a “semi-homemade” kind of girl. First of all, Sandra Lee is a nutcase. Secondly, it really opens the door for a lot of creepy preservatives and unidentifiable ingredients. Sketchy at best. So hang onto your hats when I tell you that the crust for these tartlets? Totally a shortcut.
As part of the Walkers Blogger Buzz ambassador program, I recently received a shipment of more shortbread cookies than my waistline knew what to do with. Ok, that’s a lie. I knew exactly what to do with them. I immediately ripped open one of the boxes and tore into those cookies with a voracity rarely seen outside of National Geographic documentaries. When I came up for air, I suddenly knew I wanted to make some sort of lemon bar and use the cookies as a shortcut shortbread crust.
