I love Martha's recipes but I have to admit that these shells did not work that well for me. They just did not form as beautifully as the picture. The lemon curd is amazing and the meringues turned out good.
BRANDY SNAP BASKETS WILL WORK JUST AS WELL FOR A CHANGE.
BUT AFTER QUITE SOME TIME THEY DO VERY SLIGHTLY SOFTEN TO THE GOOD AS THEY WILL NOT BE SO CRUMBLY WHEN EATEN
I'm pretty sure this is the same recipe as the one found in Martha Stewart Baking. about 99% sure. If so, this is amazing! It's the best lemon curd I've ever eaten. Don't be daunted by the temperature thing and all the steps. It's worth it. I made this with just the classic tart dough. Instead of buying tartlet pans, I just cut out circles and formed them inside a muffin tin. Martha may be horrified, but it worked and they were beautiful! and this broke newlywed didn't have to pay for a new pan!
