Lemon Macaroom Tartlets
By: Michaela Brown
I love coconut and I love lemon curd! So these dainty little tarlets are a sweet treat in my opinion! They could be served on a dessert platter, they would look beautiful on a 3 tier platter at a high tea, or at a brunch.
2 cup coconut, flaked 1/2 cup sugar 1/3 cup all – purpose flour 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 egg whites 1 package instant lemon pudding 1 teaspoon lemon juice 1 teaspoon lemon zest Coconut to sprinkle over top
Step by Step Instructions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease 24 mini muffin cups. In a mixing bowl, combine 2 cups coconut, sugar, flour, vanilla and egg whites; mix well
Divide mixture evenly among the prepared muffin cups (about 2 tsp. each) press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of the muffin cups (use cold water on fingertips to keep the mixture from sticking).
Bake in 400 degree oven for 10-15 minutes or until edges are golden brown, watching carefully. Remove and cool for 2 minutes in the muffins tins, then remove tartlets from muffin tins and cool completely.
Prepare lemon pudding mix according to package directions; add lemon juice to the mixture for added flavor. Spoon the lemon mixture into each tartlet shell
Sprinkle with coconut and lemon zest.
