Paleo Coconut Lemon Tartlets

Paleo Coconut Lemon Tartlets

These sure are some tasty little tarts! The hubby loves a nice lemon dessert and he will almost always chose pie if it’s an option.  What better way to surprise him than with bite sized lemon curd filled pies (lemon tartlets)?

This lemon curd is nice and tart and tangy! You can add more honey if you like yours sweeter but if you crave that pucker worthy lemon tang, this is perfect…and the coconut flour crust makes for a great combination of tastes!

When life gives you lemons…make lemon curd! Paleo lemon curd…

Paleo Lemon Curd

This lemon curd can be used for anything you like and even enjoyed by the spoonful! We enjoyed it in these awesome little coconut flour crusts and fancifully called them tartlets…because we’re fancy! Well, I am anyway…even though everyone made fun of me for being fancy! I guess you don’t have to be fancy to enjoy them 🙂

I made these little crusts in a regular sized muffin tin and made some using baking cups and some without. The ones without the baking cups were easier to press into shape and popped out of the muffin tins just fine!
