Step by step recipe

1 Corsican tarts : Photo of step #1Prepare 2 sheets gelatin.

Sieve 250 g chestnut flour and 250 g flour together into a food-mixer bowl.
2 min.
2 Corsican tarts : Photo of step #2Add 200 g butter, 200 g caster sugar and 2 eggs. 5 min.
3 Corsican tarts : Photo of step #3Knead until smoothly mixed. 5 min.
4 Corsican tarts : Photo of step #4Gather the pastry into a flat cake, wrap in plastic film and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (it is easy to make this pastry the day before you want to use it). 2 hours
5 Corsican tarts : Photo of step #5After this resting time, roll out the pastry and line the tart tins or moulds. 10 min.
6 Corsican tarts : Photo of step #6Bake the tart cases "blind". 20 min.
7 Corsican tarts : Photo of step #7Squeeze 8 clementines and collect 50 à 60 ml of juice.

Add 100 g caster sugar and melt the sugar over low heat.

Be careful not to let it boil; the clementine juice should be just hot, around 122°F (50°C). Use a thermometer to be sure.

Add the gelatin and mix in thoroughly.
10 min.
8 Corsican tarts : Photo of step #8Put the pan to cool by standing it in cold water. Stir from time to time with a whisk. 10 min.
9 Corsican tarts : Photo of step #9Melt 150 g white chocolate in a bain-marie. 10 min.
10 Corsican tarts : Photo of step #10Use a brush to coat each pastry case with a thin layer of white chocolate. 5 min.
11 Corsican tarts : Photo of step #11This will keep the pastry crisp by stopping the clementine jelly soaking into it. The white chocolate will barely affect the flavour, if at all.
12 Corsican tarts : Photo of step #12To finish, fill the tarts with the clementine jelly and leave to set in the fridge. 5 min.
