Lemon Berry Tartlets

Lemon Berry Tartlets

The trend of mini desserts is a healthy eater's salvation. When sweets are pre-portioned, it's harder to cheat. You can't say, "Well, I'll just have a small sliver" or "I'll just even out this side of the cake..."
These Lemon-Berry Tartlets scream summertime to me. I imagine eating them on a patio after a luncheon with my girlfriends while sipping iced mint tea and feeling the warm breeze. They're just so refreshingly clean on the tongue.
Lemon and raspberries pair well. Each has a sourness with hints of sweetness and an acidity. You could use blueberries or strawberries, but I just love this combination.
Phyllo dough is a secret weapon for the healthy baker--it even comes in whole wheat varieties. The paper-thin layers of dough are often painted in butter for pastries like baklava, but they'll serve as a low-calorie pie crust with minimal added fat. The dough itself is basically just flour and water.
The "curd" filling is basically a lemon pudding. You can serve it on scones or muffins, as a topping for ice cream or sorbet, or as a pie filling, as you see here.
