Lemon Raspberry Cream Tart

Over the weekend I celebrated my 32nd birthday. (It still seems so weird to say that I’m in my 30’s.) So, this year, I wanted to make something I would actually like for my birthday. Believe it or not, I don’t really like cake. I know, I know! How can the cake lady not like cake!? And if we are being completely honest here, (I’m trusting you all with this information!) I HATE cupcakes! ***GASP!!!*** That almost seems like cake world blasphemy. I love to make a decorate cakes, but I would rather not eat them. Really, I’m just not a huge sweets person in general.

However, if you put the words lemon and raspberry together into the same recipe, I’m almost guaranteed to like it. Which made it a no-brainer to create something lemon raspberry for my “special day”. I’ve also been seeing these adorable tarts popping up all over the place that basically look like two large cookies with some creamy deliciousness in between and on top. Plus some pretties to finish it up, because it’s no fun if it isn’t pretty! I figured what better excuse to try one? But, of course, I had to put my own spin on it.

So here’s what I came up with. Recipes included as well as a quick video walkthrough on how I put it all together. And, as an added bonus, this lemon sugar cookie recipe can be used for cut out and decorated sugar cookies as well! Yay! I topped it with small cutouts of the same sugar cookie recipe, meringue cookies, and fresh raspberries, lemon slices, and mint leaves. Yummo! My hubby and his friends devoured it. But I did manage to get a couple bites before it disappeared.

    Rachel what did you make the white rosettes with and how? Thanks, Helen

      Hi, Helen! The white pieces are meringue cookies. Basically you make a meringue (egg white, sugar, cream of tartar, and vanilla) and bake low and slow. There are tons of recipes online for these. You can see in the video that I used the same 1M tip from our cupcake class to pipe “dots” that come out shaped more like a ridged Hershey kiss.

    Thank you for the info above. When I come for the cookie class next month – I want a couple more flooding bottles, please. Perhaps a #2 and #3 tip. Thanks Helen
