    patriciamercer84's Note:

    The thing with meyer lemons is that they're much less bitter than regular lemons. They're cross-bred with mandarin oranges, so you get all the citrus in a much milder form. I'm not usually a fan of lemon anything but these are just irresistibly luscious.

    Sugar Cookie Tartlet Crust

    Meyer Lemon Curd Tart Filling

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Sugar Cookie Tartlet Crust:.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 400°F.
    3. 3
      In a stand mixer, cream together sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Beat in flour, kosher salt, cream and vanilla, until mixture is moist and crumbly.
    4. 4
      Press dough into four 4-inch tart pans (or one 9 or 10 inch tart pan) and press it up the sides, making sure the layer on the bottom is even.
    5. 5
      Bake for 15-20 minutes, until crust is set and firm at the edges. Cool, then fill with desired filling and bake as that recipe directs.
    6. 6
      Meyer Lemon Curd Tart Filling:.
    7. 7
      In a medium saucepan, combine sugar and lemon juice and bring to a boil. Stir occasionally.
    8. 8
      In a large bowl, whisk together zest, eggs and egg yolks. When sugar mixture comes to a boil, pour very small amounts down the side of the bowl into the egg mixture while whisking continuously to temper the mixture. Continue to add only a few tablespoons at a time until all has been incorporated.
    9. 9
      Transfer egg mixture back to sauce pan and return to stove. Cook on medium heat until thickened, about 8 minutes, whisking frequently.
    10. 10
      Remove custard from stove and whisk in butter, adding in one piece at a time.
    11. 11
      When all butter has been added, cool curd for 15 minutes before pouring into prepared tart crusts.
    12. 12
      Refrigerate overnight or at least 8 hours before serving.
