How to finish the tartelette


After that dust your worktop with flour and roll out the dough till it’s around 3 millimeters thick. Then cut the dough with a baking ring and transfer it on a silicon sheet. Cut the remaining dough into thick lines. Cover the big baking ring with the dough and press it well. Now trim the top with the back off a knife or a pallet knife. Then press it on the dough circle. Now take a smaller ring and press the dough on the outside. Trim this as well and then press the ring in the middle of the big ring. Remove the dough on the inside and then let it set in your fridge for at least 30 minutes. After that bake it at 170 degrees Celsius for 15 minutes. Meanwhile separate 1 egg and mix the yolk with 20 grams of cream. Then take the tartelette and gently remove the baking rings. Now trim the side with a thin grater. Then add a thin layer of the egg yolk mixture using a brush and also add a thin layer of the hazelnut frangipane. Now press a couple of raspberries in the frangipane and bake it for another 15 minutes. Then let it cool down completely. Once cold add the raspberry gel on top and level it with a pallet knife. Then transfer the praline ganache into a mixing bowl and beat it for around 3 minutes till stiff peaks have formed. Now transfer it into a piping bag fitted with a drop shaped nozzle and pipe small lines on the inside of the tartelette. Then lay a couple of raspberries on the middle and pipe the remaining praline ganache on the outside. Then finally fill the raspberries with the raspberry gel.
