Wild Berry Jam Meringue Tartlets

These little meringues are a simple and tasty crowd pleaser. I like to make my own wild berry jam from beautiful fresh forged wonders.

Prep time50min

Total time1h 17min
Serves12

MealAfternoon Tea

Ingredients

  • For the pastry
  • 185g plain flour
  • 125g unsalted butter, from the fridge
  • About 50ml water
  • For the filling
  • 350g home-made mixed wild berry jam (or you could use high quality shop brought one)
  • For the meringue
  • 4 egg whites, room temperature
  • 200g golden caster sugar

Instructions

  1. Sift the plain flour into a bowl. Cut the butter into dice and add to the flour.
  2. Lightly rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  3. Add the water then mix to a dough, first with a wooden spoon then knead lightly with your hands on a worktop dusted lightly with flour. Form the dough into a ball and wrap in cling film, then refrigerate for 30-45 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 200Β°C.
  5. Remove the pastry from the fridge and roll into a large disc on a floured worktop. Roll very thin, until almost transparent. Use a 9cm round cutter to make 12 discs.
  6. Lightly grease a muffin tin and line with the pastry discs.
  7. Blind bake for 10-12 minutes until the pastry is lightly golden.
  8. Remove from the oven and fill three-quarters full with jam and place back in the oven.
  9. Bake for a further 5 minutes or until the jam bubbles.
  10. Take out of the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  11. Whilst the tarts are cooling, place the egg whites in a large bowl. Whisk to soft peaks, then add the sugar gradually until smooth and thick.
  12. Pipe or spoon the meringue on the tarts and return to the oven for 8- 10 mins until the meringue is crisp and slightly coloured. Let the tartlets sit in the tin for until cool.
