Ingredients

  • 8 tablespoon Lemon Curd
  • 80 g Butter melted
  • 100 g Digestive Biscuits or Graham Crackers, crushed
  • 100 g Ginger Biscuits crushed

Instructions

  • Place the crushed biscuits (use a food processor for this) and melted butter in a mixing bowl.
  • Mix together with a spoon until clumps form.
  • Press the biscuit mixture between 4 mini tart tins with removable bases (the tart tins need to be about 8cm wide). Use the back of a spoon to really compact the biscuits down. Place the tart tins in the fridge to set for a minimum of an hour but up to 48 hours before. You can also speed the process up by placing them in the freezer for 30 minutes if you prefer. (See below for an alternative to mini tart tins).
  • Carefully unmould the biscuit bases onto a serving platter and top each base with 2tbsp of lemon curd. Serve with cream and berries.

Notes

Top Tips:
  • Use homemade lemon curd if you can. It tastes so much better than shop-bought!
  • If you don't have any tart tins, use similar size cooker cutters instead. Press the biscuit base down into the cutter, directly onto a tray or serving platter, and place in the fridge to set. Carefully pull up the cookie cutter to release and top with the lemon curd.
 
Variations:
  • Try using different types of biscuits. Digestives, ginger biscuits, shortbread or biscoff biscuits all work well.
  • Top the tarts with some baked mini meringues for mini lemon meringue pies.
  • Serve the lemon curd tarts with berries such as raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, or blackberries.
  • Swap the no-bake biscuit bases for store-bought mini pastry cases instead.
 
Storage:
Make the biscuit bases up to 48 hours before you need them and store in the fridge. Top with the lemon curd, not more than 1 hour before serving, otherwise, the bases may become soggy.
