I love pastries, and make them at home to eat them fresh at breakfast is awessome!
With this amount of dough, I had 15 pastries
400g of flour
1/2 teaspoon fine salt
1 teaspoon vanilla essence or zest of 1 lemon
Mix all the ingredients, and if needed (I didn't need it) add one or two teaspoons of water. Place it in the fridge for 30 minutes. With a rolling pin, flatten them to 3-4 mm, and place it in the mold of your desire. Freeze them, and bake them in a preheated oven at 350F for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
I made two fillings, lemon custard and vanilla cream marzipan
2 eggs plus 4 egg yolks
70g lemon juice
130g butter, unsalted
Mix everything except the butter, and cook it at low heat. When it has thicken, add the butter, and mix it well. Let it cool. Place the filling on the pastry shell, and decorate it with blueberries.
1 cup of milk
4 tablespoons of sugar
200 grams of almond grinded
1/2 teaspoon of almond essence
2 eggs and 2 egg yolks
40 grams of butter
Mix everything except the butter. Cook it until it is thick. Turn off the stove, and add the butter, mix it well and let it cool. Place the filling on the pastry shell, and decorate it with apricots. I sliced apricots, and cover them with 2 tablespoons of sugar, and simmer it for 3 minutes. Enjoy!
I am so impressed with those little lemon curd tartlets. The pastry was perfectly golden and the lemon curd so smooth. Absolutely right up my alley.ReplyDelete
