Servings: 6
  • 25 g Butter
  • 150 g Shortbread (English short pastry)
  • 7-10 Tbsp Oil
  • 200 g Double cream cheese
  • 75 g Lemon curd (from the glass)
  • 250 g Whipped cream
  • 4 fresh protein (Gr. M)
  • 1 Organic Lime
  • baking paper
  • 7-10 Tbsp Silicone muffin tin
  • 7-10 Tbsp Dessert ring
  • 7-10 Tbsp Piping bag with perforated nozzle


  1. 1

    Melt the butter. Crumble the shortbread (see tip below). Knead melted butter and shortbread crumbs. Line a tray with baking paper. Place a dessert ring (approx. 8 cm Ø) on the baking paper.

  2. 2

    Add approx. 1⁄6 of the crumb mass and press it to the flat bottom. Remove the ring carefully. Make 5 more bases from the remaining crumb mass in the same way. Put all bottoms in a cold place.

  3. 3

    Preheat oven (electric cooker: 150 °C/circulating air: 125 °C/gas: see manufacturer). Coat the troughs of the muffin tin with oil, place the tin on a fat pan of the oven. Mix cream cheese and lemon curd.

  4. 4

    Whip 100 g cream until stiff, fold in. Beat the egg whites until stiff, then add 2 tablespoons of sugar. Carefully fold into the cream cheese mixture in 2 portions. Fill the cream into the hollows.

  5. 5

    Push the fat pan into the hot oven. Pour so much hot water on it that the muffin tin for approx. 2⁄3 is in the water. Bake for about 20 minutes. Turn off the oven, open the oven door and let the tartlets cool down in the oven for about 30 minutes.

  6. 6

    Remove the fat pan from the oven and lift out the muffin tin.

  7. 7

    Place the shortbread bases on the tartlets and press down lightly. Cover the muffin tin with cling film and freeze for about 1 hour.

  8. 8

    Carefully press the tartlets out of the moulds and let them thaw in a cool place for about 30 minutes. Wash lime hot, grate dry and cut into 6 slices. Whip 150 g cream until stiff and fill into a piping bag with a large perforated spout.

  9. 9

    Spray as tuffs on the tartlets and decorate with lime.
