MINI STRAWBERRY TARTS

I  love these mini fruit tarts because they’re SO easy to make. The recipe might have a few steps, but making them couldn’t be easier. And look how pretty they are, with all the cream & strawberries.

I have used strawberries here but you can use fruits of your choice for making the fruit tarts. Also instead of a cream filling, you may use custard, cream cheese or ganache.
