Creamy Lemon Tarts

"When life give you lemons.....Make lemon Tart!"

This lemon tart isn't like most I've seen. Its creamy and more on the cheese cake side. But don't get confused...Its NOT cheese cake. Just creamy like one. I have to give my mom all the credit on this one. This is her recipe. One of the family favorites. Mom always asked each of her children what kind of dessert we want for our birthday. Let me say, four out of six of us were born in May. Someone always asked for the lemon tart. Not that its me every time or anything, im just saying.

It was so easy to make, a kid could do it.

Lemon Tart
2 blocks cream cheese (room temperature)
2 cans sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup Lemon Juice ( more or less to your liking)

With a mixer, cream the cream cheese (Not doing this first will cause lumps)
Add the sweetened condensed milk and lemon juice and continue to cream all together.
Pour into graham cracker pie crust.
Refrigerate 30 minutes before serving.

Mom makes her own graham cracker crust, makes it thick and puts it in a casserole dish. Its the best but I was in a hurry. I used the small premade pie crusts and halved the recipe.

These little pies are so sweet and tarty. Perfect for a quick treat or a party.
