Strawberry Lemon Cups

My sister made these the other day for a family get together. Then she brought some to me (her favorite sister lol) They were a big hit. They were so refreshing in this heat. My little 8 year old came running in from outside and asked if he could have one. She said sure have all you want. Well he took her literally and ate all the rest of them...about 8 of them :/ Yep they were that good!!

Strawberry Lemon Cups
1 Box white cake mix
2/3 Cup Flour
4 oz Cream Cheese
8 Tbsp Butter melted

Mix then put in greased mini muffin tins on 350* for 11-13 minutes I did 11 minutes then pushed them down with a tart press & put them back in for 2 min.

2 1/2 Cups Whipped Topping
1 1/2 Cups Lemon Curd (recipe below, make sure it is cooled)
12 small Strawberries (quartered)

Whip up cool whip & lemon curd together put in tarts. Top with cut up strawberries.

Microwave Lemon Curd

1 cup white sugar
3 eggs
1 cup fresh lemon juice
3 lemons, zested
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

In a microwave-safe bowl, whisk together the sugar and eggs until smooth. Stir in lemon juice, lemon zest and butter. Cook in the microwave for one minute intervals, stirring after each minute until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. Remove from the microwave, and pour into small sterile jars. Store for up to three weeks in the refrigerator
