Lemon Berry Tartlets
The puff pastry I used for this recipe needed to be completely thawed and rolled out before cutting, but turned out puffed and flakey as desired. It made about 2 dozen tartlets that I filled with lemon curd. These are very simple to make and look very fancy. Definitely a good way to make use of leftover filling.

Lemon Curd
I followed the recipe exactly, using a mixing bowl over a pot of simmering water, whisking constantly. It came out completely smooth with no need to sieve. I used it as filling in puff pastry tartlets, and also on scones. Sweet and tart. I will be making it again!

Easy Lemon Cookies
I made these cookies following the recipe exactly. I used a 510g Betty Crocker Super Moist lemon cake mix. I noted that other reviewers had problems with the Duncan Hines mix. I had to mix the dough thoroughly with my silicon spatula, but did not find the dough sticky to work with at all. I balled a rounded measuring teaspoon of dough, and followed the advice of another reviewer to roll the balls twice in icing sugar. The dough did not stick to my hands when I rolled them or sugared them. I placed 15 balls on a parchment lined cookie sheet, and baked them in a 350F oven for 10 minutes. This results in roughly 5 dozen cookies about 2 inches in diameter. I left the cookies on the tray for about 5 minutes before cooling on a rack. After they were cool, I stored them in an air-tight container. The resulting cookies are soft, chewy but not too cakey, and quite good. They do taste a bit like froot loops, but as other reviewer have noted, this IS a cake mix recipe, so do not expect gourmet. I found the froot loop taste to be less prominent the next day. I will make these cookies again, but next time I will try using real lemon juice and zest in place of the extract in hopes of reducing the froot loop taste further. That said, they are a nicely textured cookie that I will be trying again with other cake mixes. These cookies are on the sweet side, so serve them with a nice cup of coffee.
