Strawberry tartlets have a shortbread crust, filled with strawberry jam, a sweet creamy filling, and topped with fresh strawberries. This is a delicious and elegant homemade dessert.

Once I had tart from outside, it was a bit different than usual it had strawberry jam in-between the crust and the filling, which inspired me to try out my version of it.

My favorite is the pastry shell they taste awesome like butter cookies. The filling is light and creamy and perfect with the strawberry jam and crust too..

Strawberry tartlets are super simple, Make the crust and cream ahead of time and assemble just before you want to serve them.

Servings: 9 Tarts


For the pastry

  • 125 g flour
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar
  • 60 g butter softened
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp water if needed

For the filling

  • 100 ml milk
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 20 g caster sugar
  • ½ tbsp flour
  • ½ tbsp cornflour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 60 ml whipping cream
  • cup strawberry jam
  • strawberry sliced


For the pastry

  • Sift the flour and icing sugar into a bowl. Add the butter and egg yolk, mix well with your fingertips. Add water if necessary, to mix to a soft dough. Cover and place in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C . Spray nine mini fluted tartlet tins well with baking spray. Roll out the pastry and use to line the tartlet tins. Prick the bases with a fork, then bake in the preheated oven for 12 – 15 minutes until golden brown. Gently remove the tartlet shells and allow them to cool completely on the cooling rack.

For the filling

  • Heat the milk until warm. Whisk the egg yolk, sugar, flour, and cornflour together in a mixing bowl until smooth. Add the milk and vanilla extract into the bowl and whisk until smooth.
  • Pour the mixture back into the pan and stir over a medium heat until boiling. Cook, stirring constantly, for about 2 minutes until thickened and smooth. Let it cool well.
  • Add the whipping cream and beat until it thickens.

To make the tartlets

  • Spoon some strawberry jam into each of the cold tartlet shell, then spoon filling on the jam and level the top. When the filling has set slightly, top with sliced strawberries.

Enjoy this delectable treat!
