Strawberry tarts

 

Wimbledon has just started, so I wanted to share a summery dessert inspired by Wimbledon. This means it had to involve the quintessential strawberries and cream.I bought these lovely little tart moulds in Denmark a few months back and finally got to put them in use.  These beautiful strawberry tarts are made with an almond/ coconut flour crust. They are filled with mascarspone and quark/ greek yogurt and topped with fresh strawberries. It is strawberry season in Norway at the moment so I made these with fresh strawberries. These can be made with other berries ,you have on hand,  like raspberries or a mix of different berries. I like to bake with a healthier twist, so these tarts are not too sweet. Bake these fabulous strawberry tarts for your afternoon tea or a nice summer dessert.

  1. I’ve never heard of Wimbledon, but I’m from LA so obviously we don’t have the same thing here! 😀 My parents do love watching tennis, though, haha! Anyways, these tarts look wonderful, and I also adore strawberries in a fresh dessert!
