Fruit tartlets are a small and delicious treat that nobody can resist!

The delicious mix of butter, vanilla and fruit makes them the perfect sweet and the perfect size for any occasion. I particularly love preparing them for tea party or for a special breakfast with friends and I always get compliments.

People will not believe it is homemade, so be ready to prepare several because they will not last!

Step 1: Ingredients

Add wax paper on top of each square of puff pastry. Once you cover all squares you will add another mold of cupcakes. This will create the needed weight to avoid the pastry to get puffy.

Step 6: Bake for 20 Minutes at 220 °C

Follow the instructions shown in the package.

The brand I bought required that the package of custard should be previously hydrated in 1/2 cup of water and then add it to 500 ml of boiling milk. To avoid custard to get thicken you should stir constantly until it thickens.

Step 8: Fill Tartlets
