Pear and pistachio tartlet
Thinking of the sun and nature coming back to life I was craving for pears and pistachio.
I love the juicy sugary flavor of pears. Their light yellow color goes so well with the dark green pistachio cream, not to mention the wonderful mix of flavours.
Serves : 4 tartlets
Here's what we need :
for the crust : 200g flour, 50g icing sugar, 50g pistachio powder, 1 pinch of salt, 125g butter at room tempareture.
For the pistachio cream : 50g icing sugar, 50g almond powder, 20g pistachio paste, 1 teaspoon cornstarch, 1 egg, 50g melted butter, 3cl whipping cream, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
Here's what we do :
let's start with the crust :
In a large bowl, mix icing sugar, flour, pistachio powder & salt.
make a well and add the butter coarsely chopped. Work with your finger tips until sandy.
Add 2 tablespoons of cold water & make a ball.
Allow to rest 1 hour in the fridge.
It is time for the pistachio cream :
In a bowl, mix the icing sugar with the pistachio, pistachio paste & cornstarch.
Add the egg, the melted butter, whipping cream & vanilla extract.
Preheat the oven at 320°F
spray the crust with a rolling spin & divide it in 4 circles.
Put the circles in 4 round pie moulds. Cover with wax paper & dry beans.
Bake for 15/20 minutes. Remove the beans & wax paper.
Meanwhile, peal the pears & cut them into thin slices.
Garnish the tartlets with the pistachio cream, cover with the pear slices.
Bake for 20 minutes.
relax, savour & share!
