Obviously, the Answer is Cupcakes.


In life we make choices every hour of every day. We do not think of all of them separately and think about them a lot, but they are choices. What to wear, eat, where to go, what to do and so on. Some days we choose healthy lifestyle, some days we choose treats and laziness - or is it just me? :) Like is great with diversity and adventure. We all have our "right" way of living, but there is a rebel inside each of us. So some days, the answer is obviously cupcakes! :)

This recipe is not a healthy one, for a change. But we threw a birthday party for a family member and baked refreshing lemon cupcakes aka lemon tarts. And they were awesome! :)

Here is the recipe for Cookie Lemon Tarts, thanks to Inquiring Chef! I loved their pictures and I love the fact that they published the recipe with grams and not only cups. I have never used cups as measuring tool.

115g unsalted butter, softened
100g granulated sugar
1 egg
190g all-purpose flour
scant ¼ teaspoon baking powder
pinch salt

Lemon Filling:
2 eggs
3 egg yolks
150 ml whipping cream
juice from 1 large lemon
100g granulated sugar

4 tablespoons powdered sugar, divided
150ml whipping cream

1. Beat the butter and granulated sugar until it is fluffy. Add the egg and mix on medium until fully incorporated. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt all at once and mix on medium just until no spots of flour remain, about 20 seconds (do not over mix). Wrap the dough in parchment paper and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

2. Heat the oven to 180°C and make the lemon filling by whisking together the eggs, egg yolks, whipping cream, lemon juice, and granulated sugar until smooth.

3. Take the dough from the refrigerator and make little cups in a muffin tin from it. Pour the lemon filling into the centre of each sugar cookie cup.Bake for 10-12 minutes and let them cool of before adding the topping. Serve chilled.

I really love this recipe, it is fresh and a delicious treat especially in the summertime. Be sure to check out the blog Inquiring Chef, where you will find awesome recipes and great stories about their family life.

Have a sweet day!
