Ingredients

  • 500 grams sweet almond dough
  • 45 grams butter (softened)
  • 45 grams powdered sugar
  • 45 grams ground almonds
  • 1 eggs
  • 115 grams superfine sugar
  • 30 grams water
  • 55 grams egg whites
  • 40 grams raspberry puree (or sauce)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 340F.
  2. Roll out the dough on a floured surface and cut out 8 circles.
  3. Butter and flour 8 tartlet pans and line with the dough. Prick the bottom of each pan with a fork and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
  4. Raise oven temperature to 400 F.
  5. To prepare the almond cream, whip the butter, powdered sugar, and ground almonds to a fluffy cream.

  7. Fill in the tartlet crusts equally with this mixture.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes.
  9. To prepare the meringue, bring the water and sugar to a boil and cook until it reaches 250F. Meanwhile whip the egg whites until stiff.
