Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees. Grease a muffin tin.
1. To make tartlets, cut pastry into squares and brush each square with a little olive oil. Work quickly and keep pastry covered with a damp tea towel to prevent it drying out. Place the pastry squares in a muffin tin, overlapping each other slightly, press in to form a "basket" and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature.
2. To make the curd: Melt butter and add sugar, eggs, lime juice and rind. Cook over a low heat in a double boiler, stirring continuously until thick. Cool to room temperature, fold in granadilla pulp and refrigerate. Fill pastry bases with curd.
3. To make meringue: Whip egg whites with salt until stiff. Fold in castor sugar, a little at a time, until thick, beating continuously. Fold in icing sugar.
4. Place mixture in a piping bag and pipe a swirl on top of each curd. Bake at 160 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
