One of the great things about this recipe is that you can make many alternatives. If you compare my first recipe, the SPRING TARTLETS with these Hazelnut Tartlets it is quite obvious how different they are. Therefore, you can come up with you own flavours as well, isn’t that amazing?

Otherwise, the process is always pretty much the same.

Although, in this case I making them with vegan meringue, which is delicious by the way. It is also very easy to make, even if you never have done it before. Just make sure you read my instructions carefully. There is just one think about making meringue with sweetener instead of sugar, is that the next day is not as thick anymore. Therefore I recommend to make it just before serving, for example if you making them for a party. I also made a note in the recipe that you can try sifted coconut sugar if you prefer. It will work, although the meringue will be more yellow, which in tis case should not be a problem.

Working with butane torch is also super easy and nothing to be afraid of. This is my second recipe I used on meringue and it really ads nice caramelized flavor. You can check my previous recipe as well, the LEMON TARTS.

Otherwise, just like all my desserts, this one is also highly nutritious, guilt free superfood dessert! If you do not eat all 12 by yourself of course!!! It is also easy to make, just take your time and read my instructions carefully and watch the short video as well.

I almost forgot to mention my favorite pansies, that are edible. Since I love decorating my desserts with flowers, although I don’t always have edible at hand. Few of my previous recipes have I attached link about edible flowers, however, I just found another one. At this time there is quite a lot of details about ORCHIDS. And they are one of my favorite flowers. To be honest though, I never eat flowers! I just like to decorate with them for a photoshoot, but after I am done I put them in the water.
