"There are 3 things I esp like about this Taste Of Home dessert recipe by Sarah Gilbert of Beaverton, Oregon: 1) It features lemon curd (1 of my favorite ingredients), 2) It’s easy-fix, make-ahead & no-bake because it uses a prepared pie shell or prepared mini-tart shells & 3) It’s the perfect light dessert for a dinner party if made as a pie cut into wedges or can also be made as mini-tarts for larger crowd occasions. For the latter use & as shown in my pic, it worked extremely well as a sml sweet treat to accompany a European-style cheese-cracker-fruit dessert assortment. I garnished mine w/Stroopwafel cookies brought to me from the Netherlands, but a tsp of lemon curd, fresh berries or shaved chocolate will work well to add appeal & color. NOTE RE YIELD: An accurate yield was an issue because this recipe serves 12 if made as a pie or 24 if made as mini-tarts. In the end, I opted to choose the average of 18 for the yield. ENJOY!"

So easy and so good! We made the individual tarts and used light cool whip but otherwise made as directed. Delicious! Thanks for sharing!
