Ingredients (4px)

For the filling:

  • 8 tartlets (buy in a store)
  • Juice of 1 or 2 Lemon meyer
  • 100g custard sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 85g unsalted butter

For the meringue

  • 3 egg white
  • 150g granulated sugar


In a saucepan add the Meyer juice to the butter. Melt over in a low heat.

In a bowl, mix the eggs with the sugar, whisking vigorously, then pour the melted butter and Meyer juice on it.

Return the mixture into the pan and cook (3 min) until the Meyer filling has thickened.

Pour this Meyer cream into the tartlets and refrigerate.

Whisk the egg whites while adding half the sugar, and continue to whisk again until reaching a very firm meringue. Add the remanining sugar in the end to tighten the meringue.

Using a piping bag draw small meringue spikes on the tartlets, then burn with a blowtorch.
