Sohm Al Tart

by Lemon Drop from A Recipe Reborn

“A traditional Ishgardian cake made up of several stacked layers tapered to resemble Sohm Al, a peak sacred to the Dravanians. Ishgardians believe that devouring the mountain will grant them fortune in their struggle with the dragons.”

Crust

US

Ingredients

Metric

7 oz

bread flour

190 g

5 oz

butter

150 g

½ tsp

Kosher salt

3 g

¼ cup

water

40 mL

  1. Put all the ingredients in a bowl and cut them together until combined using a pastry cutter, or use a food processor and pulse until combined.
  2. Turn the dough out on to a floured work surface, shape it into a ball and then flatten it into a disc.
  3. Roll out the dough using a rolling pin to a thickness of 1/4 inch or 6.5 mm.
  4. Using any rounded shape, cut the dough into rounds slightly larger than the tart pans.
  5. Press the dough rounds into the tart pans and cut away the excess.
  6. Dock the dough by pressing a fork into it over the entire surface, creating many holes.
  7. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  8. Preheat the oven to 390°F/200°C.
  9. Place the tart pans on a baking sheet and bake them for 20 minutes.
  10. Remove the crusts from the pans and set them aside to cool.

Maple meringues

US

Ingredients

Metric

2

egg whites

2

¼ tsp

Kosher salt

1.5 g

¼ tsp

cream of tartar

1 g

1 tbsp

maple syrup

20 mL

½ cup

sugar

115 g

  1. Preheat the oven to 250°F/120°C.
  2. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and beat using a hand mixer, stand mixer or whisk until the mixture holds stiff peaks.
  3. Prepare a pastry bag with a tip of your choosing.
  4. Spoon the meringue mixture into the bag.
  5. Pipe 8 meringues onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  6. Bake the meringues for 1 hour, remove them from the oven and set them aside to cool.

Note: The meringues will expand slightly in the oven so make sure to pipe them slightly smaller than what would fit in the tart crusts.

Chestnut purée

US

Ingredients

Metric

14 oz

chestnuts, roasted and skins removed

400 g

1 tsp

vanilla

5 mL

1 cup

water

232 mL

½ cup

sugar

115 g

  1. Put the chestnuts in a pot and pour in enough water to cover them.
  2. Add the vanilla.
  3. Bring the pot to a boil, turn the heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes.
  4. Strain the water from the chestnuts and set them aside.
  5. Bring the water and sugar to a boil to make a simple syrup, and then remove it from the heat.
  6. Using a food processor, purée the chestnuts and simple syrup together.
  7. Pass the purée through a fine mesh sieve to ensure it is completely smooth.
  8. Add water to the purée to thin it out if necessary. It should be thin enough to pipe using a bag and a pastry tip and be similar to medium consistency buttercream icing.
  9. Prepare a pastry bag with a tip of your choosing and spoon in a portion of the purée leaving some in the bowl.
  10. Set the purée aside until you’re ready to assemble the tarts.
