Summer is officially here. And that means it is time to start indulging in delicious desserts that showcase beautiful fresh fruit! Some of my favorites are red, white, and blue desserts, with a tantalizing sweet yet tart allure and filled with delicious fresh berries!
We are big berry eaters in our family. So I had to give creating a tartlet recipe a try! I’ve never made a tartlet before but always wanted to. So summer time and trying to keep the kids busy is a great excuse to give it a go!
Magic of the Berry Tartlet Recipe
To begin you definitely want to start with quality fruit. Pick out the best produce from your store or if at all possible your local farmers market! Or even better yet, from your own garden! The fresher the better! But also make sure it is ripe!
Give the berries a good washing to ensure there are no chemicals or sprays on them. That’s the last thing you want to be indulging in over the summer; insecticides
Slice the strawberries to down to about the size of the blueberries.
With the shells filled, bake at 325 degrees for 7-10 minutes. Once they are completely cooled, you finish by topping them with the fresh strawberries and blueberries.

- 1 (14oz) can Sweetened Condensed Milk
