Since it is the middle of the week I wanted to make something simple. These tartlets are simple not only because they are easy to make, but also because they require only a few ingredients.
You will need...
8 Ounces Bavarian Cream filling
16 Tartlet shells
This recipe is quick and easy. It mainly consists of assembly and has minimal preparation. While I usually prefer to make things from scratch, sometimes it's nice to put together a quick and delicious dessert in under a half an hour.
I purchased this Bavarian Cream filling from a restaurant supply store called Orson H. Gygi Company. If you can't find the cream at a restaurant supply store you could whip up some pudding easy enough to use in its place. As for the tartlet shells, I found these at my local market. This recipe is very forgiving, it's just an assembly of fruit, shortbread and cream so feel free to get creative and use what you have or whatever you find in your neck of the woods.
Wash and dry strawberries. Remove the stems from the strawberries, by cutting off the tops evenly, then slice them about an eighth of an inch thick. Fill your tartlet shells with the Bavarian Cream, (about 3/8 of an ounce of cream per shell). To make the sliced strawberries into hearts, use a pairing knife cut a small triangle out of the top middle of the strawberry. Then diagonally cut off the far right and far left corners of the strawberry, and place heart in the center of each tartlet.
