Cook time: 15 mins


● 2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature

● 3 egg yolks
● 1 ½ tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
● ¼ tsp kosher salt
● 3 cups of all-purpose flour.

● 2 cups granulated sugar
● ¼ tsp kosher salt
● 4 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
● 15 ml Pure Vanilla Bean Paste.


● Fresh berries: strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries

● Preheat the oven to 160°C.

● In the bowl of your stand mixer, beat the butter and granulated sugar on medium speed for 3 minutes, or until light and fluffy.

● In a mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, vanilla extract, salt, and all-purpose flour until just mixed.

● Roll out the dough between two pieces of parchment paper in four equal pieces. Proceed with the remaining 3 dough pieces in the same manner.

● Bake your cookies at 325 F for 14-18 minutes, until gently browned on the edges and firm.

● Before decorating the cookies, let them cool fully.


● Place a sauce pan with water on the bottom of the burner. Place it on a low heat setting. In a mixing dish, whisk together the egg whites and sugar. Place the bowl over a low-heat saucepan of water. Over a hot water bath, whisk the whites and sugar until a thermometer reads 160 F. If it’s still gritty, keep cooking it until it’s smooth.

● Pour the ingredients into the bowl of your mixer and beat until firm peaks form and the meringue cools to room temperature. Whip it until it’s fully cool.

● Add the salt and stir well. 1 tablespoon at a time, add the butter to the mixer on medium speed until it is well integrated.

● In a separate bowl, combine the vanilla bean paste and the sugar.

● Now, fill a piping bag with the frosting.


● Place one layer of biscuits on parchment paper, carefully.

● Fill in the border of the bottom layer by piping dollops of frosting all the way around it. Hover the bag vertically over the cookie to pipe a dollop of frosting. More dollops should be used to finish the cookie.

● Place the top cookie layer on top of the dessert with care. Fill in the top layer with dollop after dollop.

● Start with the larger pieces when decorating your dessert. Start with the macarons and strawberries. Fill up the gaps with flowers and smaller fruit such as raspberries and blueberries.


● It is advisable to consume cream tarts within 24 hours of decorating them. It can, however, be kept in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, lightly wrapped.
