These glazed tarts are easy to prepare, delicious and very attractive. Purchased tart shells make this dessert especially convenient.

    Blend together cream cheese and lemon rind. Cover bottom of each tart shell with cream cheese mixture.

    Filling

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tbsp corn starch
