Hello friends! Today I wanted to offer you one place to gather all of your ideas for making puff pastry tarts. As you know I LOVE using puff pastry in my recipes. It is quick and easy. It offers a versatile ingredient which can help you go from woe to wow in less than 20 minutes

How to make Puff Pastry Tarts?

When brainstorming ideas for dinner parties and guests, it can be so overwhelming. You want to get it right and I completely understand that. The thing is though, wowing your guests doesn’t have to involve hours of time. Yes, there is a time and a place for fabulous desserts that have many steps involved and have been painstakingly put together. But and it is a big BUT, my friends, sadly these days in the busy world we live in, time is not always of the essence!

If sweet is your thing, here are some sweet tart recipes, but there is also plenty of savoury tart options available too, so keep reading!

So let me guide you through some options to make your puff pastry tart come together, wow your guests and tickle your taste buds. LET”S GO!!

Using Puff Pastry as the base for a Tart

The essence of making a delicious puff pastry tart is ensuring that your pastry is cooked well. We want to achieve the following for the perfect tart:

  • pastry that is cooked all the way through
  • a light golden colour
  • flaky, buttery pastry, that has a sound when bitten into
  • a nice flat appearance, ready for delicious toppings.

You are unlimited when it comes to using your imagination to create puff pastry tart recipes once you know the basic steps!

We can achieve perfectly cooked puff pastry in 5 simple steps. You don’t even need a tart tin for these recipes, a simple flat baking tray works perfectly, every time!

The pastry only needs to be in the oven for 15 minutes to cook (20 if it is still quite frozen). I usually have it on a baking tray for the 1st 10 minutes and then slide it onto an oven tack for the remaining 5 -10 minutes (cook following this instruction: Preheat your oven to 180 degrees F 82.2 degrees C. Line a baking tray with paper, place pastry on top)

With puff pastry, some interesting ingredients for toppings and a bit of imagination, there is no limit to the delectable desserts or savoury tarts you can create!

This is an ingredient you can have fun with. There is nothing overly complex about the steps involved and you can be as creative as you like for your tart toppings.

Vegan option

I am going to let you in on a little secret here. You can get VEGAN puff pastry at the grocery store! Yes, it is so easy to find and ticks a lot of boxes for vegans. Keep your eyes peeled for it and use coconut cream if you would like to make your tarts vegan!!

How to Make Puff Pastry Tart Quick Steps:

About these recipes:

  • Cream or caramel are good starting places for toppings
  • Layers work best
  • These are quick recipes to prepare!
  • You can use as little as 2 ingredients to top your tarts

To answer your questions:

  1. The pastry can be prepared ahead of time
  2. The recipe is not suitable to freeze
  3. It is better to let the pastry cool before adding cream!
  4. These are SUPER EASY and quick desserts or tarts to make

There is no limit to the fun that can be had using your imagination and creativity to top your tarts with any ingredients you can think of, enjoy the creativity!

Therapy time

Did you see when I typed above….DRIZZZLED MELTED CHOCOLATE, mmm hmmm. Yes, that is right. We melt our chocolate in the microwave and then take a fork and swing it back and forth over the tart to make a beautiful chocolate layer! I am telling you, doing this is MUCH cheaper than therapy and this task makes me feel oh so rejuvenated!!

Take a fork, dip it in the melted chocolate and swing it back and forth over the tart, you will enjoy this step!

If you are new to Sweet Caramel Sunday, thanks for coming. I love sharing my passion for cooking and food with you and I love hearing that you find inspiration in my recipes.

If looking at all of these tart recipes has got you craving a sweet fix, I also enjoy making chocolate bark and I think you will too!

These recipes are all fun and yet simple at the same time:

If you are after a chocolate dessert or snack which looks great and is easy to prepare, then chocolate bark is it!

If sweet is not your thing and savoury ticks your taste buds, a few dinner ideas that you might like to try out are:
