Easter Peep Lemon Tart

Did you buy a pallet of the ubiquitous Easter peeps this year? We actually found some fun and VERY cute recipes to help you deal with those sugar confections.

The Easter peeps take the place of meringue in these fun and easy to make Easter treats.

Ingredients

  • Frozen pie shells OR mini tart shells
  • Easter Peeps - your choice of color but the yellow ones work best for the lemon theme
  • Lemon curd or lemon pie filling
  • Juice of one lemon

Instructions

  1. Bake pie or tart shells at 450 degrees until golden brown.
  2. Fill with lemon curd. If you make your own, reduce the sugar by about 1/3 as the peeps will make the whole concoction too sweet to eat.
  3. For store-bought lemon curd, add 1-2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice before placing mixture in tarts.
  4. For tarts: Cut 3 peeps per tart into half-inch pieces. Trim the back off of one whole rabbit shaped peep.
  5. Place the bunny peep in the middle and surround with the other peep pieces.
  6. Broil for about 2 minutes, or until the topping is slightly melted and golden brown.
