Apple custard tart

A very simple tart, but really delicious. Shortcrust pastry has been unflavored with lemon zest and juice, but if you prefer, you can use cinnamon. Once you arrange the apple slices in the tart shell, a rich and creamy custard is then poured over the apples and the tart is baked until the custard has set. So, nothing difficult to prepare, but you will get a gorgeous tart.

Lemon meringue tarts

French pastry chefs are famous for their “Lemon meringue tart”. Every one has his own recipe, especially for the lemon filling. In addition to lemon juice and eggs, they can use starch, gelati sheets, a lot of butter or white chocolate…. But everyone wants to achieve the same goal: a soft and velvety batter with a strong lemon flavor. generally it is combined with a billowy meringue, which can be flamed with a torch, or not. I decided to add small French meringues … just to get the right combination of textures. I read so many recipes,by the most famous Italian and French pastry chef, to get the so-called perfect lemon cream … ..and to realize my first lemon meringue tarts I chose the recipe by a great master of Italian pastry Emmanuele Forcone. But in the future, do not miss the recipes by the great French pastry chefs.
