Step 1:

Gather all ingredients

Crust
1 1/4 c flour
1/4 c sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 c butter, cut into pieces

Filling
1/2 c whipping cream
2 oz. cream cheese
1Tbs. sugar

Toppings
fresh fruit
1 tsp. lemon juice
2 spoonfuls honey spread
crushed lemon heads
sweet mint garnishing

Step 2:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put the flour, salt, and sugar into a bowl and mix them together. Put the butter pieces in and use your fingers, a fork, or a pastry cutter until the putter pieces are mixed in and are about the size of peas.

Step 3:

Mix in the water until the dough can stick together. Form it into 24 small balls.

Step 4:

Spray two mini muffin pans with non-stick cooking spray. Put a dough ball in each cup and press them into the shape. Put them in the oven for 14-16 minutes. When they're done, wedge them out with a table knife. Set them out to cool.

Step 5:

In another bowl, whip the cream. Then beat in sugar and cream cheese.

Step 6:

Spoon the filling into each tart shell. Put fresh fruit on each tart. Then mix together the lemon juice and honey spread in a small bowl. Drizzle the mixture on each tart and sprinkle them with crushed lemon heads. Garnish with sweet mint leaves.

    You can also make them without using a mini muffin pan, but I think I used almost a double recipe on the filling.
