For the mini tart shells (tartlets) there are lots of options.
You can:
  • make your own using a recipe like this one from A Baking Journey;
  • make your own using puff pastry in a mini muffin tray (you will need to cover the first mini muffin tray with another mini muffin tray to stop them from rising too much);
  • make your own using pre-cut and par-baked puff pastry;
  • make your own using pieces of bread with the crust removed, rolled flat, and baked in a mini muffin tray;
  • buy pre-made tart shells from the grocery store or a specialized food store (this option does not have to be baked, so makes this way the most simple).
For the lemon curd you can use a recipe like this one: homemade lemon curd with honey.
