Lava Cheese Tarts | Recipe

Lava Cheese Tarts | Recipe
100g of butter,
55g of sugar,
1 egg,
220g of flour

225g of cream cheese,
120g of mascarpone cheese,
70g of sugar,
1 egg yolk,
100ml of heavy cream,
1 tsp vanilla extract,
1 tsp lemon juice

1. Beat together the softened butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.
2. Whisk in one egg until well combined.
3. Stir in the flour until a dough forms. Wrap this dough in plastic wrap and chill in the fridge.
4. Whisk together the cream cheese, mascarpone cheese and sugar until well combined and homogenous.
5. Add in the egg yolk and heavy cream. Whisk together until thick.
6. Stir in the vanilla and lemon juice.
7. Take the dough out from the fridge. Divide into 10 rough portions and roll each into a rough ball.
8. Push the dough ball into an egg tart tin so as to form a thin bottom layer of dough and thicker sides.
9. Pierce the bottom with holes using a fork and then bake these tart shells at 180c for 8 minutes or until dry.
10. Using a small ice cream scoop, distribute the cheese batter into the tart shells. Brush the tops lightly with a beaten egg yolk to give it a golden brown colour.
11. Bake at 180c for 10 minutes and not for any longer otherwise the filling will overcook and set.
12. Remove from oven, let cool slightly and serve immediately whilst still warm and gooey.
