Pate sucrée

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, mix butter with almomd meal, sifted icing sugar, lemon zest and yellow food colour.

    Add lightly beaten whole egg and mix to combine.

    Add the sifted flour and salt and mix just to combine.

    Flatten the dough into a round disc, wrap in cling film and refrigerate for 12 hours

To line the pastry rings

  1. Brush the interior of your rings with butter (2.7. inches) and place on a baking tray with baking paper (I used micro perforated round tart ring, micro perforated tray and Silpat non-stick mat).

    Roll the dough gently until you have an even 2mm thickness.

    Gently ease the dough into the sides of the ring, use your fingertips to press the pastry into the edges and up the wall of the tin.

    Using the knife, remove the overhanging pastry.

    Prick the base with a fork and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Almond, blueberries and lemon filling

  1. In a small bowl, soften the butter with a small whisk or with a fork, then add sugar and mix to combine.

    Add all other ingredients (but blueberries) and mix to combine until well incorporated.

To bake

  1. Heat fan oven to 320 F - 160°C.

    Bake the tart shells for 18 minutes and let cool a few minutes.

    Pour the almond filling in a pastry bag and fill about 8 g, place halved blueberries and bake for 10 minutes.

    Let completely cool.

White chocolate and violet namelaka

  1. Soak gelatin sheets in cold water.

    Heat the milk with glucose until 160F - 70°C, add wringed gelatin sheets and stir to combine.

    Pour the hot mixture over the chocolate in 3 batches and mix well after each addiction.

    Add cold heavy cream, colour and violet arome and blend with a hand blender.

    Pour the namelaka over the almond filling and refrigerate for at least 8 hours.

To serve

  1. Garnish the tarts shells as you like and enjoy.
