Cow Dung Pile @ UFO Tarts

Ignore the unpleasant name or unsightly picture of this pastry...hehehehe it actually taste good or should I say fantastic! ^0^ My first attempt did not goes well but it did affect the taste. As my kids love this pastry alot, including me of course, I attempted again the following day :) This time round the colour and shape looked so much better than the first try.

(Below pics) 1st attempt, did not control the heat well, so the meringue collapsed slightly before it can be browned properly.
