fondant au citron

These are really nice. We think that the grapefruit is bitter, but not at all, it will be the sweetnest of the two.


For the dough (if you want it thick, if not, directly divide the quantities by 2)

- 250g of flour (175g)
- 125g butter (65g)
- 60g sugar (30g)
- 1 egg yolk

For lime mix:

- 100 ml of lime juice
- 2 eggs
- 30g flour
- 100g sugar
- A few drops of green coloring

For Grapefruit mix:

- 100 ml of grapefruit juice
- 2 eggs
- 30g flour
- 100g sugar
- A few drops of red dye

If you want to do one or the other, not two, just double or divide the quantities of the dough into 2 (however, keep the yolk in the recipe)


For pastry:

- Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

Prepare mix
