Passion Fruit Mousse Tart Recipe + Make The Perfect Italian Meringue

by Gourmet Food World
Passion Fruit Tart And Italian Meringue Recipe | Gourmet Food World

Light, sweet yet tart, with a melt-in-your-mouth buttery crust, this Passion Fruit Mousse Tart has it all! The perfect dessert for summer, the airy mousse won't weight you down when you head for the pool after lunch.

You can make this as one big tart, but another great way to present this would be in individual mini-tarts. Just use smaller tart molds and cut the dough accordingly. Not passionate on Passion Fruit? No problem? Use any of the other flavors of frozen fruit purees by Ravifruit, and adapt the recipe to your (or you guests') taste.

The trick to this dessert is the recipe for Italian Meringue. This somewhat little-used meringue recipe uses a sugar syrup, rather than caster sugar, for stiff, super glossy peaks that are unwaveringly stable and firm. This makes for perfectly firm mousses (and also allows torching, if so needed), making Italian meringue sturdier and much more forgiving than French meringue. To make sure you get the right consistency, take care to add the sugar syrup slowly, in a slow, thin stream.

Running short on time? Skip making the tart shell and use pre-made tart shells (you can find our great selection here - including round and square shells in an assortment of sizes).
