Default Lemon Butter Tarts

These recipe is a great twist on the classic butter tart, and is a
perfect spring time treat!

INGREDIENTS:
1/2 cup butter
2 teaspoons lemon zest
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3 eggs
2 egg yolks
12 (3 inch) tart shells, baked
3 egg whites
1/4 cup white sugar
________________________________________
DIRECTIONS:
1. Melt butter or margarine in a saucepan. Add rind, lemon juice, and
1 1/2 cups sugar. Beat eggs and egg yolks until thick, and add to
lemon butter mixture. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until
thick. Chill.
2. Beat 3 egg whites until stiff. Gradually add 1/4 cup sugar, and
continue beating until stiff and glossy. Fill baked tart shells with
lemon custard, and top with meringue.
3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) just until tarts are a
delicate brown color.
