Easy Lemon Custard Pudding

Dessert doesn’t get any easier than this Lemon Custard Pudding.

I was making these Bread Machine Sweetened Condensed Milk Dinner Rolls and I had sweetened condensed milk left over that I wanted to use up.

A quick fridge inventory turned up half a block of cream cheese and I knew I had commercial Lemon Curd in the cupboard and frozen tart shells in the freezer.

So I whipped up this lemon custard filling. I baked the tart shells I had -about 8 mini tartlets. I had lemon custard left over so I just poured it into individual pudding cups.

This custard is very versatile- you can use whatever jam of jelly you have on hand for flavouring. You can top it with some fresh fruit – or not….

Quick, easy, tasty. You can make it ahead and store for a few days in the fridge.

If you have sweetened condensed milk left over consider making the Bread Machine Sweetened Condensed Milk Dinner Rolls.
