I find citrus to be a ray of sunshine during these cold winter months. And nothing puts a smile on my face more than finally seeing those delightful Meyer Lemons at the grocery store. I love all citrus, but there’s something special about a Meyer Lemon. They have a spectacular hue that’s more orange than yellow and they are sweet and less tart than a regular lemon. Not to mention you can only get them during the winter months. A sparkling winter citrus gem, if you ask me.
I needed something to cheer me up and remind me of the warmer, sunnier spring and summer months that are around the corner. I picked up a bag of gorgeous Meyer Lemons at the store last week and decided I wanted to make some kind of tart. I incorporated cream cheese and lemon for the filling and made my own cute tassie cups. Tassie cups are made using a simple pastry dough and by pressing the dough into mini muffin tins. Buying pre-made tarts is a quicker alternative, but not nearly as dainty.
Meyer Lemon Tassies are the ideal way to chase away the winter blues and are sure to put a smile on your face. The filling is fresh and light and the pastry is flaky and melts in your mouth. I adore the dainty two-bite size of the tassie cups, too. Convenient and scrumptious – what more could you ask for?
