Individual Custard Tarts
Individual custard tarts served with fresh fruit are the essence of simplicity after a rich meal. Light and delicate yet flavorful, these tarts make a lovely presentation dressed with fresh mint leaves.

1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
1 pint strawberries*, sliced (fruit is optional)

*About 3 peeled, sliced kiwifruit or 2 oranges (sectioned) could be used in place of the strawberries or one could dress the tarts with any desired combination of these fruits.
