Servings: 24 cups
Prep Time: 1 hour 15 min
Cook Time: 25 min
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 3-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/4 teaspoon salt
Lemon Curd Filling
3 large lemons, zest and juice
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
For the Tassie cups: Place all of the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until the mixture forms a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill until firm, about 1 hour.
Form the pastry into 24 small balls; press with fingers into the bottom and up the sides of ungreased miniature muffin tins. Bake for 20 minutes, until lightly browned.
Lemon Curd Filling
Grate the zest from the lemons, then juice the lemons. Place the zest and sugar in a food processor and process until combined. Add the lemon juice and eggs and process until smooth. Slowly add the butter to the mixture, pulsing as you go.
Place the mixture in the top of a double boiler and cook over simmering water for about 5 minutes, until thick.
Remove tassie cups from muffin tins, spoon lemon curd in the center and serve.
Cook’s Note: Lemon curd will keep in a jar in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
