FOR THE SPONGE

  • 8 Pastry sweet pastry tartlet cases, 10cm in diameter

FOR THE FILLING

  • 1 Lime(s)
  • 2 Lemon(s)
  • 4¼tbsp Cornflour
  • 225ml Water
  • 185g Unrefined golden caster sugar (we use Billington's)

FOR THE MERINGUE

  • 5 Egg white(s) (free range)
  • 250g Unrefined golden caster sugar (we use Billington's)
  • 2tsp Cornflour

The Method

STEP 1
In a bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, whole eggs, sugar and corn flour until smooth.

STEP 2
Finely grate the zest of the lemons and lime and squeeze the juice of the lemons. Mix well and add the water.

STEP 3
Put the bowl over a pan of simmering water and keep stirring until the mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon. Remove from the heat and add the butter and keep whisking until the butter has melted and the mixture becomes glossy.

STEP 4
Fill the tarlet cases to the top with the lemon and lime curd. Chill in the refrigerator to set.

STEP 5
In the meantime, make the meringue. In a large bowl, add the egg whites and whisk on full speed adding a little sugar at a time until you get a glossy thick meringue. Add the corn flour and continue to whisk for a minute or two.

STEP 6
Place the meringue into a piping bag and pipe high peaks onto the set lemon tarts. Gently blow touch the meringues until golden brown. Serve.
