Lemon and ricotta tartlets


Here´s a great recipe of lemon and ricotta tartlets. Can’t get enough of citrus this time of year and these little tartlets are super delicious and gluten-free! If you don´t have any small tart pans just make a big one!


Lemon and ricotta tartlets

120g butter, softened

260g sugar

1 pod vanilla, the seeds

4 lemons, the zest (and the juice from 1 lemon)

4 egg yolks, at room temperature

240g almond flour

4 egg whites, at room temperature

250g ricotta

1,5 dl flaked almonds, to decorate

Powdered sugar, to decorate


  1. Heat oven to 160°.
  2. Grease 8 small tart pans.
  3. Whisk butter, 175g sugar, the vanilla seeds, the grated lemon zest  and lemon juice in a bowl for about 5 minutes until white and fluffy.
  4. Add yolks and whisk for 2 minutes.
  5. Add almond flour and whisk to a smooth lump-free batter.
  6. In a clean bowl whisk the egg whites to foam, add the rest of the sugar and continue whisking until stiff peaks forms.
  7. Fold in the egg whites to the egg- and butter batter.
  8. Fold in the ricotta a little at a time until you have a smooth batter.
  9. Fill the forms with the batter and cover with almond flakes.
