Lemon Curd Tartlets

This lemony tartlet recipes came from one of my favorite cookbooks, Falling Cloudberries by Tessa Kiros. I have used some her recipes for my cooking and so far, they are pretty good. In fact, I am gonna try a couple more recipes from her book. Btw, I have reduced the sugar slightly for the lemon curd. (Not much of a sweet tooth family here!) Also, you may want to double up the recipes. They are really good!

Lemon Curd Tartlets

Ingredients

Pastry

70 g (2 ½ oz) Butter, slightly softened
30 g (1 oz) Sugar
70 g (2 ½ oz) Plain (All-Purpose) Flour
25 g (1 oz) Ground Almond
A Pinch of Salt

Lemon Curd

75 g (2 ½ oz) Butter
3 Eggs, lightly beaten
230 g (1 cup) Sugar
Juice and Finely Grated Rind Of 2 Lemons

Method

To make the pastry, cream together the butter and sugar with a wooden spoon. Add the flour, ground almonds and a pinch of salt and mix well, using your hands when it becomes a little stiff, until the pastry comes together. Flatten slightly, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least half an hour before using.

Now make the curd. Melt the butter in a metal bowl over a saucepan of barely simmering water. Whisk in the eggs. Add the sugar and whisk until thoroughly combined. Whisking continuously, gradually add the lemon juice and zest. Cook over the simmering water for about 20 minutes, stirring often, until thickened. Cool at room temperature.

Preheat your oven to 180˚C (350˚F). Roll out the pastry thinly on a lightly floured work surface and cut out circles of pastry to line about 12 shallow tartlet tins. Line with baking paper, fill with baking beans or weights and blind bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the visible pastry is golden and cooked. Remove the paper and beans and cook for another couple of minutes to dry the bases. Remove from the oven and leave to cool before gently removing from the tartlet tins. When completely cooled, fill with lemon curd.

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite!

Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well. Have a great weekend.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
