Step 1

Prepare the almond cream.

Knead the butter until it’s nice and soft. Add the sugar and mix carefully. Incorporate the beaten egg then add the almond powder and whip well until the mix is homogenous and frothy.

Spread 2/3 of the pie crusts with the almond powder and bake in the oven at 160°C for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, beat the egg whites into snow peaks while incorporating the sugar and 2 drops of lemon, then continue to whip during about 3 minutes. Using an icing bag, spread the meringue on the tarts and briefly pass it under the oven grill to bring a little color.
