Petit Fours : Lemon Meringue Tart

Lemon Meringue Tart 5

Lemon Meringue Tart 1

Lemon Meringue Tart 2

Psst... I am cheating with this one. Put together haphazardly before I left for Shanghai last week with the intention of finishing up my lemon curd from the Lemon Meringue Cupcakes. I then realised that it didn't quite help to clean out the clutter in my fridge because to get this, I found myself making up a huge batch of Pierrre Herme's  sweet tart pastry dough..... Consolation is that this keeps well for a couple months in the freezer and I suppose friends and colleagues will be happy to hear that I could potentially whip up an Apricot Chocolate/ Orange tart or 2 in the coming weeks for them.... or I could try to work on something gorgeous with strawberries... it is raining strawberries here in Seoul. I am lucky to be in the middle of what appears to be the peak season for strawberries in Korea. The fruits are a glossy garnet red (unlike the pale hue that I typically see for imported Korean strawberries in Singapore), sweet and flavourful with a tender bite. I am setting aside luggage space for 2 punnets to be brought home!

I had chosen to make these into petit fours, tiny bite sized treats that can be devoured in one single mouthful. I am a fan of miniature sized sweet treats. Sweets, I feel, are best enjoyed in small doses. Their ability to delight is indirectly proportional to their sizes. A fist sized cupcake or a 2"  macaron has little appeal for me.

Hence, I leave you this for now... my next teleconference's calling.

haha, Pickyin - I finish the photos just a few hours I left for the airport... didn't occur to me to cut it up. Next time!

@Mei Teng, thanks for your compliments. However,I am not happy with the photos here and I have a feeling they will be rejected by FG and TS.
