25 Days of Christmas, Day 20: Lemon Tartlets

Only four days until Christmas and my baking is winding down. I do have a few more things to make but, they aren't critical to my enjoyment of the season so, I'm in no huge rush. Time is of the essence if I am going to deliver goody trays, however, so; I will be putting one together to deliver to the girls at the bank as well as one for the employees and customers at the hardware store. If I didn't give away a lot of this stuff, I would be eating it for months. Also, I would weigh a ton.

Some things that won't make it onto the trays, however, are these lemon tartlets; partly because they don't really hold up well for delivery and partly because we I ate most of them at our employee party Sunday night. I couldn't help it; they are delicious.

Lemon Tartlets

1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk (I reserved the remainder of the can for the peppermint patties that I was making the next day so as not to seem wasteful)
1 1/2 cups lemon curd (homemade or store-bought, your call)
Tartlet shells (once again, homemade or store-bought; I'm lazy, I buy mine)
*Optional powdered sugar and berries for garnish

Mix condensed milk and lemon curd. Spoon into tartlet shells. Garnish with a sprinkling of powdered sugar and berries, if desired.

They are surprisingly simple to make, yet, they look quite impressive and they taste absolutely delicious. Don't care for lemon? Substitute the filling of your choice; you probably can't go wrong.
