I made these, but instead of making this crust, I cut out pie dough in a flower shape and baked them in a muffin tin so they formed a very small tart shell. Then I filled with this filling and topped with a rasberry for the center of the flower...it turned out very cute and so delicious. They were about 2-3 bites only. Perfect since I served several desserts.

Thanks you so much for bringing this to our attention. We have re-tested the filling and have updated the recipe. It is important to beat the whipped cream and the lemon curd only until it is combined. This mixture should not be over beaten. Also, there are several brands of lemon curd and some brands are thicker than others.

one thing that needs to change... you should not rebeat the curd with the heavy cream, it became too thin. You should slightly fold the curd in the cream. I am hoping it will set more in the refrig or I will have a very expensive, running tart.

Is there really supposed to be BASIL in the crust? That seems unusual for a lemon tart. Just wondering...
