Modern medlar tartlets

We had to. After experiencing the Renaissance medlar tartlets, we had to prepare a more modern and simpler version of them. So, we have replaced the eggs and fruit compote with a simple medlar jam, enclosing it in a super buttery dough which will literally melt in the mouth just like snow 🙂 . Sounds good, doesn’t it?!modern medlar tartlets
