Ingredients for Mini tarts "Cranberry-orange"

Step-by-step instruction of cooking Mini tarts "Cranberry-orange"

Step 1

The first step is to prepare the cream, the longer it infuses, the better it reveals citrus aroma.
So, mascarpone mixed with sugar (better powder) and zest of one orange. Maybe a little beat on the low speed with a mixer just until creamy, or mix thoroughly with a fork.
To remove the cream in the refrigerator.

Step 2

Prepare the shortbread dough. Soft butter to pound with powdered sugar and zest, add the yolks and mix thoroughly.

Step 3

Gradually mix the sifted flour and at the end mnogoslovye cereal, knead soft non-sticky dough. To put on 20-30 minutes in the cold.
It is the cereal in this test played the role of "nuts"! Yes, Yes! Absolutely magically during baking cereal be the crunchies in a delicate shortcrust pastry and resemble crushed nuts.

Step 4

Divide the dough into 20 equal portions ( or less number of molds) and distribute the forms. Bake until tender, 20-30 minutes at a temperature of 170 degrees.
I use very small molds for cupcakes, tarts turned out so much, but tiny, literally one or two bites)))

Step 5

The cooled bases for tarts filled with jam, but better with fresh cranberries for a more pronounced contrast of flavors. Then fill with the chilled orange cream from pastry bag.
