Assembling the tartlets

  • Cut the dough into 24 squares, 12 x 12 cm.
  • Coat each square with the buttery Natsuc sugar.
  • Put 4 rectangles on top of each tartlet circle, being careful to match the dough with the shape of the circle.
  • Bake at 130°C for 10/15 min to brown and dry them.
  • Confit the zests.
  • Zest your untreated lemons and blanch them twice.
  • Drain the zests and put them back into the pan with 5cl of water, the Natsuc sugar and the juice.
  • Leave them to simmer until you obtain a syrupy mixture.
  • For the meringue
  • Beat your egg whites until they form stiff peaks, then sift in the Natsuc sugar.
  • Beat for 3 to 4 min.
  • Assembling the tartlets
  • Place the lemon cream into the bottoms of the tartlets.
  • Arrange the confit zests over the top.
  • Using a piping bag, add small peaks of meringue on top of the cream.
  • Heat the grill.
  • Briefly grill the meringues until they turn a nice brown color.

 

My extra tip

Very crispy lemon meringue tartlets

  • You can add some cut up strawberries to the lemon cream (this will save you from having to use meringue).
  • You could also make a creamy sauce or strawberry coulis to serve with these tartlets.
