Strawberry Tartlets

Hey everyone :)

Following on from my last two posts: Banoffee Pie Tartlets and Raspberry Tartlets - I thought I'd finish things off with a well known dessert (well in Scotland and England anyway) - Strawberry Tarts - now most strawberry tarts I see have whole or half strawberries on top but I thought sliced ones looked must nicer and appetising.

- all butter pastry tarts
- whipping cream (or double cream)
- some caster sugar
- strawberries
- strawberry jam
- some hot water (only a little)

1. Whip the cream up and add some sugar to taste (this is optional - I just like my cream sweet)
2. Slice the strawberries
3. Add some seedless strawberry jam to a small bowl and add some hot water and whisk until smooth and runny.
4. Now that we have everything we can assemble so arrange the pastry cases on a plate or board.
5. In the bottom on the pastry case spread some jam on the bottom.
6. Get a dollop of the cream and add on top.
7. Arrange the sliced strawberries on top of the cream.
8. Drizzle the jam/sauce on top of the strawberries and let it drip down the side.

9. EAT

Optional: You can make a strawberry sauce by blitzing strawberries, then straining them over a bowl to remove the pulp/seeds etc and then mix in a little icing sugar. It's up to you.

Such a Summery dessert ... let me know what reminds you of Summer in the comments below.
