Here is the recipe to make strawberry tarts.
Recipe for Tart shell:
- 2 Cups flour
- 1 teapsoon salt
- 2/3 cups shortening
- 6 to 7 tablespoons of cold water
In a mixing bowl, stir together flour and salt. Cut in shortening until pieces are the size of small peas. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of the water over the mixture; toss gently with a fork. Gradually add more of the tablespoons of water while working with the mixture until the dough is moistened enough to form into a ball.Form the dough into a ball and flatten the dough, with hands, on a lightly floured surface.Roll the dough into a even piece of dough.
Now, prick the dough inside the tart pan with a fork.
After the all of the tart pans are filled with the dough and pricked, they can now go into the preheated oven. (Below is a picture before they have been baked.)
Here is a picture of the tart shells after they have baked.
Now the tart shells are ready to be filled.
Here is the recipe to make strawberry filling.
- 2 tubes of Wick's Strawberry Glaze (it can be found in the produce aisle, it is NOT THE SUGAR- FREE)
- 2 quarts of Fresh Strawberries
Wash and strain the strawberries. Core and slice the strawberries into small slices and put slices in a medium miing bowl. Add the tubes of strawberry glaze to the sliced strawberries and gently fold together with a spatula. After glaze and strawberries are combined, pour it into the tart shells.
Put a little whipped cream on top of each tart before serving and they are ready to eat. Enjoy!
