Ingredients
  • 100 ml (3.4 fl oz) coffee
  • 250 g (8.8 oz) mascarpone
  • 250 g (8.8 oz) cream cheese
  • 100 g (3.5 oz) confectioner’s sugar
  • 15 g (0.5 oz) gelatine
  • 250 g (8.8 oz) dry cookies

Preparation
FOR THE SHORTCRUST PASTRY

Put the eggs and the egg yolks in a tall, narrow bowl, drizzle in the oil and mix everything with a hand blender. Place the mixture in a food mixer and add the flour and sugar first, then the lemon zest and vanilla extract. Knead the ingredients until you obtain a smooth pastry and let the dough rest in the fridge for about an hour. Butter the moulds and spread the pastry, using about 30-50 g (1-1.8 oz) of dough per serving. Put in a conventional oven at 180°C (350°F) for 10/12 minutes and once the tartlets are baked, let them cool.

Preparation

THE CAKE BOTTOM

Crumble the cookies into a bowl and combine the sugar and coffee powder with the cookies.
