Good morning everyone! If you watched the Royals game last night you may be groggy, pissed, and very irritable. That's okay, remember it was only the first game.
I'm going to share another recipe with you that we made for our engagement party. It would be a perfect addition to any game party you might be having and a sure way to get that frown turned upside down.
Mini Fruit Tarts
1-1/2 cups of flour
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1 teaspoon heavy cream
2-3/4 cups milk
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
(You can substitute eggs for just egg yolks, but I'm not that good of a cook so I used the whole egg...don't judge me.)
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Combine flour, sugar, and salt into mixing bowl or KitchenAid mixer. Mix together. Cut butter into 8 slices and add to flour mixture. Add eggs and cream. Mix well until blended together. If dough is too dry, add more cream.
3. Spray the outside of a muffin pan. This is what you will be using to make your bowl shape.
4. Alright, now sprinkle a layer of flour on your work space and roll out your dough. Make sure to flour your rolling pin too, the dough is very sticky (if it's too sticky you can refrigerate it for thirty minutes).
This is what we used to cut out our tarts, it's a pastry cutter. You could very easily use a round cookie cutter though. I just used this because it gave me a very pretty tart outline.
5. Now, take a tart and fold it over your muffin tin, push down slightly but be careful not to tear your tart. Continue process until every muffin tin has a tart circle or you run out of dough.
6. Bake for 10 minutes at 400 degrees. Ours took a little while longer to cook than 10 minutes, so after the 10 minutes check your dough. If it hasn't browned continue cooking in 2 minute intervals.
1. Add milk, sugar, cornstarch, salt, eggs, butter, and vanilla into a mixing bowl or KitchenAid mixer. Mix well until blended together.
2. Pour mixture into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 3 minutes. Whisk the mixture to get out any lumps, continue microwaving for another 2 minutes. Whisk mixture again and microwave for a final 2 minutes. Mixture should be think, but not lumpy.
1. Fill each tart crust with cream filling. Then refrigerate for at least thirty minute. Before serving, top with your favorite fruit. Makes 13-14 tarts.
These were delicious and I can't wait to make them again. I hope you enjoy them too. While you are devouring your mini tarts you can play this Royals Bingo Game. My buddy Jimmy, from 8701 Productions (our photographers), came up with this game and let me share it with all of you. Enjoy!
