Strawberry Tartlettes

These sweet little strawberry tarlettes are the perfect dessert if you are looking for something quick yet impressive.  The buttery crust combined with the fresh berries is a match made in heaven.  These were inspired by Dorie’s recipe for La Palette’s strawberry tart but instead I used my favorite basic tart dough and made them into mini tarts.  Beyond making the tart dough, there is very little other work required – just cutting up some strawberries and mixing them with a bit of sugar.  Making the tart dough is a breeze as well if you use your stand mixer like I do!  I got five tartlettes out of one batch, but I’m sure you could get six if you rolled your dough a bit thinner.  This is a wonderful light and summery dessert, and while they are fantastic on their own, they are also wonderful topped with a bit of freshly whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
