I love anything lemon and these cute Little Baby Chick Lemon Tarts are the perfect dessert recipe for spring!

I have a fond memory from childhood of being put inside of a pen full of baby chickens. Cute and soft little yellow baby chicks hopping all around me! Ever since then, I’ve had a love of chickens. I even had a pet chicken named Chicken Little when I was in grade school. Ha!

When Jill showed me this fun food recipe idea she made for us, I couldn’t have been more smitten. Two of my favorite things! These tasty lemon tarts are easy to make and you can decorate them into these sweet chicks in minutes. Such a cute and yummy treat that both kids and adults will love!

Cook in the microwave on full power for one minute intervals, stirring after each minute. You will know the lemon curd is done cooking when it coats the back of a metal spoon. Remove from the microwave, push through a fine, mesh sieve and pour into a bowl.

Spoon the lemon curd into your prepared tart cups.  Let them cool. Place out the sprinkles on a work surface.

Place the yellow ice cream sprinkles on the sides for the wings. Cut the tips off of 2 ice cream sprinkles and place them on to for hair. Add two candy eyes, a carrot sprinkle for the nose, and orange flower sprinkles for the feet.

Save any remaining lemon curd in a jar for later use. Happy Spring!!
