Strawberries & Cream Tarts

Strawberries and Cream Tarts

Today, I discovered strawberry whipped cream.

I imagined all kinds of delicious uses for it.  Poundcake.  Scones.  Cupcakes.  A frozen daquiri.

Or tarts.

Delicious cream filled, fresh fruit tarts.

I cheated and used refrigerated pie crust today.  So this recipes was pretty much effortless.

I love things that are elegant and effortless.

This would be perfect for a bridal shower, baby shower, or tea party.  Any party, actually.

Ingredients:
(makes 12-15 tarts)
1 double crust box of refrigerated pie crust (or make your own)
Strawberry whipped cream
4 fresh sliced strawberries for topping.

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Spray 12 tart cups with non-stick cooking spray.  (If you don’t have tart cups, you could do this in a muffin tin)

Using a round 3 inch cookie cutter (or anything that size, a glass or whatever) cut out 12 circles in pie crust.  Press rounds into tart cups.

Bake about 10 minutes until lightly browned.

Cool completely.

Fill a ziplock bag up with strawberry whipped cream, cut off the tip, and fill each cup with cream.

Top with fresh strawberries.

Refrigerate until ready to serve.  Enjoy!
