I couldn't wait to take them home and make something yummy with them.
I decided to make strawberry tarts.
|I made things super easy for myself by buying frozen mini tart shells. Before adding the filling you need to pre bake the shells for 10-12min at 350, then let them cool.|
|I used a large round tip and pastry bag to pipe the filling into the shells. The filling for my strawberry tarts consisted of 1 medium container of mascarpone cheese at room temperature, 1/2 cup of sugar and 250ml of heavy whipping cream|
|To make the filling add the sugar and vanilla to the heavy cream and beat until stiff peaks. Then gently fold the cream into the mascarpone cheese until well combined|
|Pipe or spoon the filling into the cooled shells.|
|I quartered the strawberries and placed them on top the filling. Then piped a dollop of whipped cream and finished the tarts off with tiny mint leaf|
