Step 1

In the microwave (I use my 8-cup Pyrex measuring cup for this) or on top of the stove (using a heavy-bottomed sauce pan) combine sugar, cornstarch, lemon zest, lemon juice, egg yolks, half and half and whipping cream (can use 2 cups half and half cream if desired and omit the whipping cream); whisk to combine.

Step 2

Microwave on HIGH until thick (removing about every minute to stir, cooking time should be about 5-8 minutes).

Step 3

Cook until thickened.

Step 4

Stir in butter; whisk until butter has melted and the mixture is smooth.

Step 5

Cool to almost room temperature, stirring every so often.

Step 6

Divide evenly between baked tart shells (at this point you can cover and chill until ready to serve)

Step 7

Before serving top eqach tart with dollup of whipped cream or Cool Whip.
