Strawberry Tarts

Monthly Featured Ingredient - Berries
I Heart Cooking Clubs
I have wanted to make these strawberry tarts ever since I received a copy of Barefoot in Paris. I made these for our Mother's Day brunch and they lived up to all my expectations. I decided to make the crust from a tried and true recipe, I did not want any failures for Mother's Day. I am happy with my decision as the crusts came out perfect. One whole recipe of tart dough provided five mini-tarts. The pastry cream was delicious. The recipe calls for Cognac but I substituted for Brandy since that is what I had on hand. Strawberries are in season and they were delicious. I think any berry would work for this recipe. On Ina's TV show she gave raspberry jam as an alternate to apricot and that is what I used. This is my first time making mini-tarts and they were a smashing success. The recipe can be found in Barefoot in Paris page 215 or from the Food Network. 

The rest of the group at I Heart Cooking Clubs is celebrating the life of Anthony Bourdain. Please head over to the website for more information.


  1. Tarts are so much fun to make and to eat. Yours sound delicious :)

  2. I love all forms of mini tarts. Your strawberry tart looks so yummy. Glad this is a smashing success. Care to share the dough recipe?

    1. I used Dorie Greenspan's sweet tart dough. I probably should have mentioned that in my post:)

  3. Oh my goodness, this looks glorious! I'm really not sure a dessert could be any better than this. It might make me forget all about chocolate:)
