Lemon Curd Meringue Tart

31/03/2018

The tart is generally an ideal choice when you are craving for something sweet for yourself or to treat your loved ones. They can be individual or one big as in today’s recipe. The fillings are infinite, creating the possibility of different cream-fruit combinations.

This lemon curd meringue tart is very simple in preparation and you may even have prepared lemon curd and frolla pastry dough on hand and put them together whenever you want. Meringue on the top adds flavor and sweetness, since lemon curd is a bit pungent. Another idea is to add different fruits on top instead of using meringue frosting (we recommend forest fruits, using one type or mix). As you can see the choices are endless, so experiment, don’t limit yourself and most importantly: enjoy every step!

Torch the piped meringue frosting as the final step.
