Citrus Meringue Tarts

What is a tart? It is the upscale cousin of pies that flaunt their fillings instead of hiding them under crust. As I was posting sweets and baked goods, I decided to post the tarts that I made a few weeks ago. I made a simple butter pate brisee and 3 different citrus curds (meyer lemon, blood orange with black pepper, mandarin orange with a bit of lime.) I also made little meringue shells and meringue toppers for the tarts. In the end they remain tarts, but they were on the very of being tiny lemon meringue pies. (maybe a kissing cousin)
