Erla’s Lemon Tarts for June



1 cup almond meal (I used an almond meal and flax meal mixture)

2 tbs lemon juice

4 dates


6 tbs lemon juice

1 lemon, rind finely grated

1 tbs honey

2 eggs


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Place pastry ingredients into a blender and mix until well combined

Line a muffin tray with baking paper

Firmly press the pastry into the bottom and sides of tray to form a shell


Bake for 10-12 minutes or until pastry is lightly browned

Remove from oven and cool

To make the filling – place lemon juice, lemon rind and honey into a pot

Lemon Mixture

Simmer on low heat for 2 minutes

Beat eggs in separate bowl and slowly add them to the simmering lemon mixture

Stir constantly and vigorously until smooth and thickened

Add more honey if desired (I did!!)

When pastry has cooled and the filling is warm, spoon filling into each tart shell

Place tarts in the fridge until cooled and set
