DIFFICULTY
40m

Ingredients
  • 100 ml coffee
  • 250 g mascarpone
  • 250 g cream cheese
  • 100 g icing sugar
  • 15 g gelatine
  • 250 g dry biscuits
  • 40 g sugar
  • 150 g butter
  • 5 g coffee powder
  • 200 g Acacia honey
  • 100 ml water
Preparation
FOR THE SHORTCRUST PASTRY

Crack the eggs and the egg yolks into a tall, narrow bowl, drizzle in the oil and mix everything with a hand blender. Place the mixture in a food mixer and add the flour and sugar first, then the lemon zest and vanilla extract. Knead the ingredients until you obtain a smooth pastry and let the dough rest in the fridge for about an hour. Butter the moulds and spread the pastry, using about 30-50 g of dough per serving. Put in a conventional oven at 180°C for 10-12 minutes and once the tartlets are baked, let them cool.

Preparation

THE CAKE BOTTOM

Crumble the biscuits into a bowl and combine the sugar and coffee powder with the biscuits.

Melt the butter completely.

Pour the melted butter over the mixture and mix until a uniform mixture is obtained.
