Ingredients

Tart Dough

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter, cut in cubes

Strawberry Curd

  • 2 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup butter

Whipped Cream

  • 1/2 cup whipping cream

Instructions

Tart Dough

  • In a large bowl add the flour and sugar. Add butter and cut in with two knives until small pea size.
  • Stir in the beaten egg with a fork until the mixture holds together.
  • Turn the dough out on a floured board pressing the dough together to form a ball.  The dough can be wrapped in plastic and refrigerated for a week. 
    Roll the dough out to 1/8" thickness then using a cutter make dough circles that fit inside a muffin tin. You want the tart shells to be shallow.
  • Bake at 300 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove tarts shells from pan to cool.

Strawberry Curd

  • Add the sugar and cornstarch to a medium saucepan, stir to combine
  • Add the egg yolks to the sugar mixture and mix to combine.  
  • Whisk in the strawberry puree and cook over medium heat.  Bring the mixture to a boil and whisk constantly for about five minutes until thickened.
  • Pour the strawberry curd into a fine mesh strainer set over a bowl.  Stir the mixture with a soup ladle to remove the seeds.
  • Place plastic wrap over the curd and chill until firm.

Whipped Cream

  • Pour the whipping cream into a bowl and whip until stiff peaks form.

Completing the Tarts
