Mini Lemon Curd Fruit Tartlets Using Airfryer

May 12, 2015 0 Comments A+ a-

I love these mini fruit tartlets!

I made some lemon curd (recipe here) earlier, but wasn't sure about what I could make with them. With some suggestions from fellow Facebook users, I decided to make some mini lemon curd fruit tartlets and these cutsies turned out great for my family gathering. Perfect for parties too. 

While strawberries, raspberries and blueberries are commonly used for tartlets, you can use whatever fruits you have in your fridge. Have fun using the recipe below - and yes, every bit of it can be done in the airfryer! Leave me a comment or photo; I would love to know how yours turn out :)

Items you will first need:
  • Mini tartlet shells (see airfryer recipe here)
  • Lemon curd (see airfryer recipe here)
  • Fresh fruits
Mini tartlet shells
Fresh Home Made Lemon Curd

Apricot glaze
>> This serves as a protective coat for the tartlet shell & fruits, and also add shine to the fruits.
Serving: For 10 tartlets

15g apricot jam
1/2 tsp water

1. Mix the jam and water together. Heat in the airfryer at 80 degrees for 3 min.

(If you don't have an airfryer, just heat it in any other preferred way.)

2. Strain the mixture through a fine strainer to remove any fruit lumps. Let it cool until it is only slightly warm.

Assembling the fruit tartlets
1. Pour some lemon curd into the tartlet crust.

2.  Add the fruit(s).

3. Apply a light coat of the warm apricot glaze over the tartlet crust and fruits using a pastry brush.

Note: Coat lightly so that it does not look jelly-like when dry.
Notice the shine? The tartlet looks more appetising!
There you have it, easy lemon curd fruit tartlets using the airfryer! Who says that you can only use the airfryer for frying? *grin*


Update (16 May 2015):
I was going through one of Baking's Corner Facebook posts when I noticed the oh-so-familiar photos of mini lemon curd tartlets. Indeed, I am always very happy when I see someone try out my recipes successfully. Great job, Jacelyn. They look so yummy! 

Btw, her tartlet shells turned out to be much prettier than mine as she used the bottom of her muffin trays for shaping. Brilliant idea - I gotta give this a try too :)
