Double Lemon Heart Tart

Desserts are like love! They are all about the layers. 

I have been thinking up a new tart recipe for weeks now. I wanted something that had some yummy layers but started out with a delicious lemon wafer cookie crust. I recently discovered these lemon wafers at the grocery store. And they were just screaming "MAKE ME INTO A TART CRUST!"

I also wanted a layer of Nutella. (When is that ever a bad bet?) and I wanted a fluffy lemon topping.

I had every intention of making these in my new mini tart pans my sister bought me for Christmas. But then my friend brought me these cute spring release form pans from Wilton for my birthday. Perfect for a little Valentine's day treat for my fam.

And so hear they are. Fluffy lemony tarts with some Nutella love hidden inside and some berry love on top.

2 Cups of lemon wafer cookies crumbs, crushed in food processor
