Strawberry Tarts - Easy Eggless Tart Recipe

Strawberry  Tarts Recipe

After trying Jam Tarts last Christmas, I wanted to try some tart recipe as mittu loved it when I made Jam Tarts.So last summer when I had extra few strawberries I made this Strawberry Tart.I used the tart recipe from Divyas space and piped a simple straberry filling...guess what it got over in no time.

It is totally disheartening to hear about Chennai...had been trying to call friends and relatives to enquire about their well being since yesterday.Lets pray that the rain should stop soon and everything gets back to shape again.All you guys in Chennai, stay safe, all our prayers are with you!

Strawberry  Tarts Recipe

My Notes:

  • Pricking with a fork is a must to avoid puffing up.
  • You can use this tart recipe as a base and make any filling of your choice like chocolate sauce / or any savory filling.
  • When the edges start to turn golden then the tarts are done.Don't overbake.
  • While rolling if it sticks dust flour but don't overdo.
  • Make sure to roll thin else your tarts will become chewy.
  • Do not overdo while kneading the dough, just bring it together and knead it once.
  • These tarts keep well even for a week but store in airtight container.

  2. Hi Sharmi. I love your recipes. Simply love them. Tried the strawberry tarts today with banana puree. But the filling was not firm at all. :( Why do you think that is? Your jam tarts are always a huge success at home, and I wanted to give a spin to it coz there were bananas at home... Would be really glad if you could reply :)

    Thank you,
    Priyanka
