Heart Tarts

With only four ingredients, this easy dessert comes to the table for summer tea parties or afternoon lunches.  These heart tarts could be made to any shape based on the cookie cutter choices used to cut the Puff Pastry sheets.

I simply used two frozen Pepperidge Farms Puff Pastry sheets and thawed them on the counter-top for twenty minutes. They roll out very easily without any flour on waxed paper or silpat mats.  I rolled to flatten only and then used a heart-shaped cookie cutter to form the tarts.

Once placed on the covered cookie sheets, I added strawberries sliced into thirds or fourths, depending on the size of the strawberry. Sprinkle with vanilla sugar before baking and just after baking.  Other types of sugar could be used, such as: granular, sanding sugar, or even flavored sugars.

Bake them in a pre-heated oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes until browned. Arrange the strawberry after baking if it dislodges.

Serve with coffee, tea, lemonade, or as a sweet treat at afternoon tea.

Other fruits could be used, such as raspberries, blueberries or blackberries.  Remember that fruits are soft, so not to use too much per tart as it could make the tart soggy rather than crispy.
