Strawberry Tarts

I love strawberries. The picking season may be over, but the strawberries seem to abound yet. I figured it would be fun to share my favorite strawberry tart recipe with you...


This is a real simple recipe... everyone has the ingredients (except good strawberries, those you must find). Prep time on this is less than 15 min, and after an hour of chill (for tarts) is ready to go for a nice summer treat. I assure you, don't knock it until you try it! It's simple and sooo good! Quite addictive.

♥ Strawberry Pie or Tarts ♥

Ingredients

1 (9 inch) pie crust, 18 mini-tart shells... pre baked
aprox. 1 quart fresh strawberries (thawed works too)
1 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
3/4 cup water
whipped cream for the top :)


Directions

1. Cut and husk the strawberries. Arrange half of the strawberries in the pastry shell, bottoms up :).
2. Mash the rest of the strawberries, combine sugar and cook in over the stove until it boils lightly and sugar is melted. STIR OFTEN! Reduce heat.
3. Whisk cornstarch and water together in a small bowl. Gradually incorporate it into the strawberry/sugar mix. Simmer until thickened (5-7 min).
4. Pour mix over pie, chill for several hours. .

Serve with whipped topping... and strawberry wine.

(Will last 2 days in the fridge)

I need to search up more strawberry recipes. If you have one to share, please, comment. I would love to try new things. I still have a lot of strawberries left.
