With my tongue planted firmly in my cheek, I offer you, today, my masterpiece…mini lemon meringue tarts.
I love baking and I’m always looking for recipes that are yummy, pretty but not too time-consuming. And I particularly like ones that you can’t screw up too badly. In the past, I’ve not had great success with intricate, fancy recipes!
I just finished an online course in food photography so I thought I’d use these little guys as subjects. They are a lot more cooperative than people or animals. They don’t move unless I move them…
This recipe did have three separate steps but each one was quite easy and at least two of them can be done a day ahead. When we have guests for dinner, I try to pick a dessert that can be prepared in advance.
The other thing I like about the mini tarts is that they lend themselves to portion control — you can have as many or as few as you wish while still having a taste of something sweet. Although once you taste these you may not be able to exert too much control.
I think these will become one of my go-to recipe for dinner parties. They would also be great for pot luck dinners. What about you? Do you have a special dinner party dessert recipe you find yourself returning to again and again?
