Passion Fruit Curd Tartlets
These elegant and delectable tartlets are perfect for a special dessert or as a delicious treat to enjoy with your afternoon tea. The buttery crust pairs beautifully with our silky, vibrant Passion Fruit Curd, creating a delightful balance of flavors and textures.
- 1 1/2 cups (180g) all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup (113g) unsalted butter, chilled and diced
- 1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar
- 1/4 tsp (1g) salt
- 1 large egg yolk
- 2-3 tbsp (30-45ml) ice water
- 1 cup (240ml) A.R.K Artisan Passion Fruit Curd
- Fresh berries and mint leaves, for garnish (optional)
In a food processor, combine the flour, butter, sugar, and salt. Pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Add the egg yolk and 2 tablespoons of ice water. Pulse until the dough starts to come together, adding more water if necessary.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and shape it into a disc. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C). Lightly grease a 12-cup mini tart pan or muffin tin.
Roll out the chilled dough on a floured surface to about 1/8-inch (3mm) thickness. Cut out 12 rounds using a cookie cutter or glass, and press them into the prepared pan.
Bake the tart shells for 12-15 minutes, or until lightly golden. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
Once cooled, fill each tart shell with a generous spoonful of our Passion Fruit Curd. Garnish with fresh berries and mint leaves, if desired, and serve.
