    In 2-quart saucepan, sprinkle gelatin on cold water to soften. In medium bowl, beat 1/2 cup sugar and 2 eggs with electric mixer on high speed until thick and lemon colored; stir into gelatin mixture. Cook about 15 minutes or just until boiling over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in lemon peel, lemon juice and 2 tablespoons butter.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    The fresh lemon in these tiny tarts just begs for a cup of hot tea. Garnish the tarts with berries or a fresh fruit slice to complete the afternoon tea experience!
  • tip 2
    No time to make the lemon curd filling? Go ahead and warm purchased lemon curd and spoon into the cooled tart shells. The curd won’t “set” like it would if you made it, but it’ll still taste great!
