This easy recipe makes twelve miniature tarts, the perfect offering for a tea party. A cooked apple glaze is brushed over the bottom of each pre-baked tart shell. Sliced strawberries are spooned in and more apple glaze is poured on. The tarts are chilled
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 12 (4 inch) prepared tart shells, baked
- 2/3 cup white sugar
- 2 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 cup apple juice
- 3 cups fresh strawberries
To Make Glaze: Blend the sugar, cornstarch, and salt; stir into apple juice. Cook over a medium heat, stirring constantly until smooth and thick. Allow to cool for 10 minutes.
Spread a small quantity of the glaze over the bottoms of the shells. Arrange washed and hulled fresh berries over the glaze, slicing if necessary to fit into the tarts. Spoon remaining glaze carefully over the berries, covering them well. Chill for 2 to 4 hours. Serve garnished with whipped cream if desired.
