For Crust:

  • 7 ounces lemon shortbread cookies or vanilla cookies
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

For Kiwi Curd:

  • 3/4 cup kiwi puree (from 3-4 kiwis)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons meyer lemon juice
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • green food coloring, optional
  • strawberries, for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  • In a food processor, pulse cookies until very finely ground. You should have about 1 1/2 cups of crumbs. Add melted butter and sugar and pulse until evenly moistened. Press crumb mixture into six small (3 3/4-inch) tartlet pans or one 9-inch tart pan. Bake for 4 to 5 minutes or until lightly golden. If crust has puffed, carefully press bottom back into place using a spoon or flat-bottomed glass. Cool completely.
  • For kiwi curd, strain kiwi puree through a fine mesh sieve. Reserve seeds and set aside. Combine puree with sugar and lemon juice in a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan. Beat eggs together with egg yolks, then add to kiwi mixture. Add butter and stir over medium-low heat until butter is melted and curd thickens, about 10 to 15 minutes. Do not let it boil. Add one drop of green food coloring, if desired for a more vibrant color. Press curd through a fine mesh sieve to remove any lumps or cooked egg bits. If desired, add kiwi seeds back to curd, stirring until evenly distributed.
  • Divided curd among prepared crusts; refrigerate until set, at least 1 to 2 hours. Top with strawberry slices.
