Strawberry Tartlets are on Sweet Caramel Sunday!

Strawberry Tartlets, serve them like scones with freshly whipped cream and jam!

It has been hot in Sunny Queensland!! But the best thing is that means it is fruit season so we are very lucky. These Strawberry Tartlets will have your guests lining up for more. 

Whip some cream, slice some strawberries, toast some pistachios and melt some chocolate!

These tartlets are smaller versions of a large ‘tart’. This is a dessert you can make easily and have it as your super impressive and decadant treat!

Australian Fruits…

Every time you go to the shops in Queensland at the moment, there are fresh peaches, nectarines, plums, blueberries and raspberries! It is truly a delight to see the array of fresh fruits and the mind brainstorms ideas to use each one of them!

Strawberries have that beautiful romance about them and the combination of strawberries and cream is a match made in heaven.

When I saw fresh punnets lining the rows of the fruit store shelves, I knew I had to whip up a sweet dessert!

Be still my beating heart…

I find that I eat less chocolate when I have dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate. Either will work fine for this recipe and again you can melt your chocolate in the microwave or on the stove top.

Pistachios are so delightful with their purple colour mixed with brown tones on the outside and their bright green insides! Toasting them gives a lovely crunch to add some flavour and texture to the tartlets

I LOVE making sweet treats, especially ones using fresh fruit.  Two of my favourites on  Sweet Caramel Sunday:

Another option for this dish is to use freshly whipped coconut cream instead of dairy cream, both taste fabulous! 

About the recipe:

  • This will become your go to dessert when you need decadence in a hurry!
  • This is the PERFECT treat for afternoon tea
  • The pistachios can be toasted in the microwave OR in a pan on the stove
  • The Strawberry syrup has just 2 ingredients! 

To answer your questions:

  1. The tartlets are best served when the pastry is fresh from the oven! 
  2. The dish is not suitable for freezing
  3. The recipe can be vegan (using vegan puff pastry, coconut cream and vegan chocolate)
  4. This is a SUPER EASY dish to pull together

It’s therapy time…

This is definitely a therapeutic recipe to make! You have the fun of painting when you brush the strawberry syrup over the pastry. The joy of using beaters when you whip the cream. The bliss of melting the chocolate and the relaxation of slicing the strawberries. Toasting the pistachios will remind you that even a good thing needs a little bit of attention!

Serve these with the pastry fresh and hot from the oven. It will cool in no time and will have a delightful crunch to every bite!

I think the best way to serve these is to let your guests decorate their own tartlets. You can easily have the cream, strawberry syrup, strawberries and pistachios ready to go. The chocolate will set again quickly so it is best to melt that immediately before serving.

Notes

  • The chocolate will set again quickly so it is best to melt that immediately before serving. 
  • The recipe can be vegan (using vegan puff pastry, coconut cream and vegan chocolate)
  • Don't worry if your tartlets are slightly different sizes, this is not a 'perfect' dessert. Roll with it, I say! 
  • This is a super quick and easy dessert. Use the time when your pastry is in the oven to whip the cream, slice the strawberries and toast the pistachios! 
  • Let the pastry cool just a little before adding the cream to the tarts so that it doesn't melt!

2019 so far…

Where has January gone? It came and went very quickly if you ask me!! One of my focus points this year is to declutter! I literally want less stuff in my life. That is going well so far, but sometimes I feel like no matter how much I donate to charity or throw out, I STILL have so much stuff!!

I find yoga really enjoyable and it gives me a great work/life balance!

If you have any questions about the recipe, don’t hesitate to drop me a line. Sweet Caramel Sunday is my home away from home, so you will most often find me here.

These are so cute and sound delicious. I love fresh strawberries, especially drizzled with a touch of dark chocolate. And the pistachios are a great touch.
