French Kiwi meringue tart
When you want a quick and vitamin-packed breakfast or snack, nothing beats a kiwi meringue tart.
To prepare the shortcrust pastry:
Whisk the egg and sugar together until the mixture whitens slightly.
Add the flour and butter, then combine well by hand until you obtain a ball of dough.
Roll the dough out on a sheet of greaseproof paper.
Lay the dough in a tart tin and prick with a fork.
Add the whisked eggs, whilst stirring continuously.
Add the cornflour and stir for around fifteen minutes over a low heat, until the cream thickens.
Add a touch of green food colouring to achieve a stronger green colour.
Prepare the meringue:
Whisk the egg whites with a pinch of salt.
When the egg whites are beginning to stiffen, start gradually adding the sugar, continuing to whisk until the egg whites are stiff.
