Now, once I find a good thing I stick with it. While it's nice to be adventurous sometimes, I find that adventure in the kitchen can easily turn into left-overs that no one. ever. eats. Quite discouraging. So yes, I admit I mostly play it safe and glory in my tried and true recipes. Case in point: when we needed some tiny desserts for a little (engagement!) party we had this last weekend I happily turned to my favorite-favorite Strawberry Dream Tart Recipe to make these little Raspberry Tartlets.
All you need are some of these itty-bitty-cutie, 2 1/2" tart pans like these available here. Mold a little ball of tart dough into them and bake at the same temp until just golden brown. Then I piped the cream cheese filling into them. And topped them with raspberries instead of strawberries for an sort-of elegant look. I think two strawberry halves would top it nicely too.
Here they are on the buffet table in all their sun-bathed glory. :)
These would be perfect for a nice little Mother's Day Tea, or Mother's Day Coffee, or Breakfast, or Lunch... or really perfect Anytime.
