Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. Place frozen puff pastry sheet on a work surface dusted with flour. Allow to thaw for 2 to 3 minutes. Using a 1 1/2 to 2-inch round cookie or biscuit cutter, cut out 12 round pieces. Place pastry rounds on the prepared baking sheet. Using a slightly smaller round cookie or biscuit cutter, cut out inner circles in each pastry round, leaving them in place. Brush each pastry round with beaten egg.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until browned and puffed, 13 to 15 minutes. Allow to cool completely before filling.
  4. Cut around the small inner circle of each pastry round and gently push it down. Fill each tartlet with lemon curd and top with a blackberry. Dust with confectioners' sugar.

The puff pastry I used for this recipe needed to be completely thawed and rolled out before cutting, but turned out puffed and flakey as desired. It made about 2 dozen tartlets that I filled with lemon curd. These are very simple to make and look very fancy. Definitely a good way to make use of leftover filling.

I've been looking for something to do with my one sheet of puff pastry, and this was perfect! The technique works great although I did have to let my dough thaw longer than 2-3 minutes to get it to open up. I made these lemon berry tartlets for an early Valentine dessert, and they looked very elegant. Can't wait to try it again using pudding or mousse or even flavored whipping cream.

I tried this recipe and it was a hit. So simple!! I put a small dollop of whipped cream on top of the lemon curd and the blackberry on top of that. Include a sprig of mint leave and you have a very pretty presentation.
