Instructions.

Preparation of the dough for tartlets:

In a bowl add the flour, the cold butter in pieces, the sugar, the egg yolk and the essence of vanilla. Knead everything very well until you get a homogeneous mixture. Prepare the molds for tartlets, either by adding butter to the molds or by putting small pieces of waxed paper. In our case we use removable molds and we apply butter to facilitate the demolding process. When the dough is ready, take small portions and place them in the tart molds, pressing well and removing the excess dough. Press well with the fork so that the mixture does not take air and take to the oven until golden brown at 250F for approximately 15 minutes.

Preparation of the Passion Fruit Cream:

Place the milk in a pot, add the sugar and dissolve well. Add the gelatin and cornstarch until there are no lumps. Bring to medium heat and stir constantly until thick. While stirring, add the butter until it is integrated and place the passion fruit juice. Bring the preparation to low heat for a few minutes until it boils and thickens. Turn off and add the essence of cream or vanilla. Let cool and with the help of a pastry bag, fill the tartlets to taste. Refrigerate

Preparation of the Meringue:

Beat the whites of the eggs until they are stiff. Little by little, add sugar and continue beating until the mixture spikes. At the end add tablespoon of lemon juice and the tartar cream. Continue beating. Place the mixture in a pastry bag, and if you do not have a pastry bag, you can do the job with two spoons. Place the meringue on the tartlets and brown in the oven for 10 minutes maximum at 350F.
