Make Pastry: Sift together flour, sugar and salt into large bowl. Add butter; cut in using pastry blender or your fingertips until butter is in pea-size pieces. Make a well in centre of mixture; add 3 tbsp (45 mL) ice water. Stir in using fork until pastry comes together. Knead a few times with your hands to form into a ball; press into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour.

Remove pastry from refrigerator and unwrap. Dust work surface and top of pastry with some flour. Roll to 1/8-inch (3 mm) thick. Cut into six 4-½- inch (11 cm) circles using round cookie cutter. Fit into cups of muffin tin, pressing into corners. Chill for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375˚F (190˚C).

Prick bottom of pastry shells with fork. Line each with foil and fill with dry beans or pastry weights. Bake for 22 to 24 minutes. Remove from oven; set aside, leaving oven on. Cool; remove foil and beans.

Make Meringue: Combine egg whites, cream of tartar and salt in bowl; using electric beaters, beat until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar while beating; beat until stiff peaks form and mixture is glossy. Place in piping bag fitted with medium round tip.

Divide lemon curd evenly among baked tart shells. Pipe meringue in a circle over each tart, starting at the outer edge and ending at centre to form a peak. Return to oven; bake for 5 minutes to brown meringue. Cool on rack. Carefully lift out of muffin tin; chill for 1 hour before serving.
