What’s cuter than a small black currant pie to brighten up a snack or a late meal, served with coffee or tea? I think it’s the perfect use for the blackcurrant curd, associated with a crunchy pastry, its subtle acidity brings a silly flavor to your tea time.
Ingredients list: blackcurrant curd tarts
(for 6 tarts)
- 6 tablespoons blackcurrant curd
- 3/4 cup (75g) flour
- 2 tbsp (25g) brown sugar
- 3 1/2 tbsp (50g) butter with salt grains
Preparation steps: blackcurrant curd tarts
In a bowl, combine flour and sugar.
Add butter pieces and work the dough until you obtain a smooth paste.
Butter 6 small pastry molds (if you use silicone molds as I did, no need for butter).
Make holes in dough with a knife.
Bake for 15 minutes in a preheated oven at 360°F (180°C).
After removing tarts from the oven, let cool before removing from molds.
Top each tartlet with a tablespoon of blackcurrant curd.
Note that even if fresh black currants are hard to find, you can buy frozen easily! So there is no reason to miss this tart recipe!
