Half-Homemade Lemon Macaroon Tartlets

Sometimes, when making multiple dishes for a large number of people, half homemade and half “with a little help” are just fine, says Michaela Brown, owner of website Stage to the Stove. Michaela, a musician and a cook, is a member of the singing group “The Browns”. Her family is well represented in her Lemon Macaroon Tartlets as she says, “Whenever I make something with lemon curd, I think of my Grandma Brown, and my dad loves coconut…!” She hopes your family will enjoy these lemony desserts as much as hers does!

You can make these Lemon Macaroon Tartlets treats for a fancy dinner party or just for simple Sunday at home. The steps are simple and easy to follow

  • Lightly grease 24 mini muffin cups
  • Combine coconut, sugar, flour, vanilla, and egg whites
  • Divide mixture evenly into the muffin cups
  • Bake in oven for 10-15 minutes
  • Let tartlet shells cool
  • Prepare lemon pudding mix
  • Spoon lemon mix into tartlet shells
  • Sprinkle with coconut and lemon zest

In less than forty five minutes, you will complete a dessert that will be snatched up and eaten by the whole family.
