STRAWBERRY TARTS FOR AFTERNOON TEA




Strawberry Tarts not only sound delicious..........they are!




























This recipe will make more than 24 tartlets.  This post is a reposted from 2009.

You will need 3 cups of fresh strawberry puree, 1/3 cup confectioners sugar -more if strawberries are tart! 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
1 cup of heavy cream and 24 tartlet shells - the mini ones

Puree the strawberries in a food processor. Sprinkle the gelatin on top, and pour the puree into a saucepan. Stir gently over very low heat until the gelatin dissolves. Let the puree cool to lukewarm. Combine the cream with 1/3 cup confectioners sugar and whip until the cream is very thick. Fold in the lukewarm strawberry puree. Pipe the mixture into the tartlet shell. Put the tartlets in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours until set. Keep in refrigeration until serving.

Well now, that looks wonderful. If I wasn't on a diet...I'd be making some of those. I love sweets and that is how I managed to have to be on this diet now!!!

Happy Pink Saturday,

Oooh, yum! I love the tablecloth - it's the perfect setting for your totally gorgeous tea party. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Happy Pink Saturday and have a lovely weekend.

Hi Bernideen - I tried to contact you by email (it failed to go through, so something wrong at your end according to Google) to let you know I have put your recipe on my blog, as the UK ladies will totally love it. And as I have around 85 PS blogs still to visit, I know I wouldn't remember where I'd seen it... so it's up with copyright credit & links to yourself. I hope that's OK - if not, I'll remove it immediately. Sorry to contact you via the blog, but the email wasn't working!
