Elegant, varied, practical and delicious; these are the adjectives that come to mind when I think of Tartelettes.
There is no more practical way to have a dessert with different flavours than this one. The crust takes just five minutes to be ready, does not require rest, slightly buttery and with a soft touch of sweetness.
Tartelettes were created in France in the 1970s. At that time, a famous chef would have received an unusual request from royalty to prepare mini-tarts of French fruit to be served individually to each guest at a gala. Thus, the request would have been granted and the famous tartelettes were born today.
These tartelettes were our dessert for the New Year, this year I let the day go by without much planning. I had strawberry and chocolate mousse in the fridge and I remembered to transform these two desserts into a more elegant one.
1 cup and a half of Flour (use your allergy friendly version that suits your diet)
1/2 cup of Corn Starch
2 tbsp of brown Sugar
1 pinch of Salt
2 Vegan Eggs (see below for the flaxseed version)
6 tbsps. of Vegan Butter
Prepare the vegan eggs, 2 tablespoons of flaxseed flour to 6 tablespoons of water. Stir and wait 10 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
In a food processor place all the ingredients in the order listed and let them mix well for 3/4 minutes. Until it has a homogeneous dough.
Separate the dough and line the shapes.
Bake for 12 minutes (or until golden).
Remove from the mould and let cool on a grid.
Fill as you prefer and serve.
As you can see is very simple to make and is so delicious!
