"Delicious little treats that are very flexible. From "Delicious Pastries" by Love Food. Preparation time doesn't include refrigerating the dough for 30 minutes."

Ready In:
12 tartlets




  • To make the dough, sift the flour and sugar into a bowl.
  • Stir in the ground almonds.
  • Add the butter and stir in until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Add the egg yolk and milk and work in with a spatula, then mix with your fingers until the dough binds together.
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • On a flour counter roll out the dough and use it to line 12 deep tartlets or individiual bioche pans (can also use muffing pans if you can get it to form correctly).
  • Prick the bottoms.
  • Press a piece of foil into each tartlet, covering the edges, and bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until light golden brown.
  • Remove the foil and bake for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  • Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  • To make the filling, place the cream cheese and sugar in a bowl and mix together.
  • Place a spoonful of filling in each tart shell and arrange the fruit on top.
  • Dust with sifted confectioners' sugar and serve.
  • Tip #1: You can use store bought tart shells or phyllo dough if you wish (I would recommend following the instructions for cooking that come with the packages).
  • Tip #2: You can substitute many different types of fillings, such as mousse, pudding, yogurt, etc.

<p>I live in Minnesota (brr) and enjoy cooking, reading, and relaxing. My real name is Brianna so feel free to call me by that name. I have just finished my first year of college. Looking forward to cooking over the summer :)</p> <p>Also, if you were wondering about my username that is because whenever I sign up for a site that requires a username this is what I would use (since it is unique and when I first came up with it I was reading Tom Sawyer). I guess I could change it but I haven't.</p>
