Strawberry Tart Recipe: Ingredients

3 cups of fresh strawberries (conversions here)

12 prepared, baked tart shells (4 inch)

2/3 cup of sugar

2 and 1/2 tablespoons of cornstarch

1 cup of apple juice

1 pinch of salt

Whipped cream

Strawberry Tarts Recipe Directions

Wash and de-cap your fresh strawberries and then set them off to the side.  Next, prepare the glaze by blending the sugar, salt, and cornstarch and then stirring the blended mixture into the apple juice.  Cook the resultant mixture over medium heat until it is thick and smooth.  Be sure to stir constantly.  After it is smooth, let it cool for ten minutes.  While the glaze is cooling, arrange your strawberry tart shells.  When the glaze has cooled, spread a small amount into the bottoms of each strawberry tart shell.  Slice the strawberries in half and arrange them on top of the glaze so that the shells are filled.  Spoon the remainder of the glaze over the strawberries so that they are well-covered.  Place the tarts in the refrigerator for three to four hours.  Serve with whipped cream on top.

Strawberry Tart Recipe: Notes

This strawberry tarts recipe makes twelve tarts.  And, just like most other Strawberry Recipes, this strawberry tart recipe is easily modified.   Frozen sliced strawberries can be used instead of fresh, if necessary, but strawberry tarts are best created with freshly sliced fresh strawberries.  However, do feel free to experiment. For those conscious about the amount of refined table sugar they consume, feel free to try organic evaporated cane juice crystals, turbinado, sucanat, honey crystals, brown sugar, or even stevia to give unique and varied accents to this quick strawberry recipe.
