Ingredients: IMG_0092

For the pastry

100 gr Flour

50 gr Butter (room temperature)

40 gr Sugar

1 Yolk

Vanilla extract

6 ml Water

1 Pinch salt

For the cream

400 gr Limes (juice and zest)

200 gr Sugar

5 Yolks

40 gr Maizena

Vanilla extract

35 cl Water

1 cl Limoncello

50 gr Butter


For the pastry mix the flour with all the other ingredients until it comes together, then roll the dough into a ball and chill for at least 30 minutes.

For the cream beat all the ingredients, except for the butter, together. Put the cream in a pan on the stove, mix well and bring to boil. Then remove the pan from the stove and add the butter, stir well. Keep it on the side.

Now roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface then cut it and lift the circles into a tarts tin. Press down gently on the bottom and sides, then trim off any excess pastry. Stab a few holes in the bottom with a fork and bake for about 10 minutes (180 degrees). Then fill the tarts with the cream and bake again for about 5 minutes. Remove the tin from the oven, let the tarts cool down then decorate them with a meringue.
