Here’s what we need.

Super simple!

1. First, preheat the oven to 355 F (180 C).

2. Using your electric mixer, mix the butter and sugar until fluffy.

3. Add the egg and mix to combine.

4. Then add about 2/3 of the flour and continue mixing.

5. Finally, add the rest of the flour and working with your hands, form a nice smooth dough ball.

6. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface into about 1/10-inch (2 mm) thickness.

7. Using a cutter or a glass with a diameter of 3 inches (7.5 cm) or slightly more, cut out circles.

8. Grease and lightly flour the back side of a mini muffin pan.

Yes, we are working with a flipped mini muffin pan here. Fun, huh?

12. Then fill your shells with sweetened whipped cream and lots and lots of fresh fruit.

I used a little vanilla custard too, and it was delightful, indeed.

These lovely tarts taste best when refrigerated.

Enjoy, dear friends!

    I made these fruit tarts for the first time a couple of days ago. I also made a custard pudding from scratch. It was time consuming at first but the next day I made it again and it was much easier to go through the process and the dough was easier to handle, probably due to the weather. Everyone that had one enjoyed it! I have to say your photo of them is what probably caught my attention but I can attest that they taste as good as they look!
