This month in Secret Recipe Club my assignment was a nice blog Feast on the cheap and Mary Ann and Mariel (Mother and daughter) have a lot of lovely recipes and finally I choose this Orange curd puff pastry tartlets because I love lemon curd and I wanna try this orange curd and was really amazing and all loved here.
Im sharing with
Orange Curd Puff Pastry Tartlets Makes
about 10 to 12 tartlets
1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
2 heaping tablespoon of orange zest
3/4 cup of unsalted butter
3/4 cup of sugar
4 large eggs
1 package puff pastry sheets
Preheat oven to 180 ° (360 f)
Cut the pastry sheets using a cookie cutter or knife I made 16 circles and the middle I cut the center so you make like a sandwich.
Bake about 15 minutes or according to package directions and then cool on wire racks.
In a bowl cream the butter with the sugar and 1 1/2 tablespoons of orange zest until fluffy and pale.
Crak each egg into a cup then add the eggs one by one, until fully incorporated (cracking them into the cup will hwlp keep any accidentally broken eggshells out of your curd)
Slowly add the orange juice until well combined and smooth.
Pour the orange curd into a big saucepan and heat over low to medium low heat for about 15 minutes stirring constantly.Dont allow to boil. The curd will start to thicken and become very creamy then you know they are done.
Remove from heat and allow to cool for about 15 minutes.
Craefully spoon the orange curd over the circles of baked puff pastry shells and put over them the other circle of pastry like a sandwich.
Let cool and garnish with orange zest or some mint leaves.
Serve warm to room temperature.
