Strawberry Tartlets

Have you ever tried making strawberry tartlets without baking? No? Well, it´s time to try it. You can make this recipe for 2 or more persons depending on how many you need. You don´t have to bake as you only have to buy a prebaked tartlet crusts from the shop. This recipe is good especially if you want to have an easy but delicious dessert for your meal. No need to bake but you have to heat the jelly you needed to put on top of the strawberries.

I used red wine jelly for glazing the strawberry tartlets as I still had the bottle of red wine jelly in my fridge. I did not like it for spreading on my bread and so I thought why not use it for my baking. This red wine jelly was a gift made by my creative and nice brother-in-law.

You don´t have to use red wine jelly for glazing your tartlets. You can use another fruit jelly for the glaze.

Strawberry Marmalade

Step by Step

  1. Hull and wash the fresh strawberries. Pat them dry with a kitchen paper. Cut the strawberries in half or in the desired sizes.
  2. Put the pre-baked tartlet crusts on your working table or in a huge plate and spread strawberry marmalade on top of the tartlets by using a tablespoon or a brush.
  3. Arrange the sliced strawberries on top of the spread marmalade. You can put them the way you like it.
  4. Heat the red wine jelly or any fruit jelly of your choice and a bit of water in a cooking pot until it looks smooth.
  5. Spread the red wine jelly by using a brush on top of the strawberry tartlets. A silicone brush is what I always use.
  6. Then you can decorate the sides of the tartlets with chocolate shavings, almonds or any thing you like for decorations. You can decorate the tartlets on top with some chocolates or just leave them like that.
  7. Enjoy your dessert with a dollop of cream!

  1. You don´t have to use red wine jelly. Instead you can use any kind of light color like peach or pineapple jelly for the glaze.
  2. You can spread vanilla pudding or cream cheese instead of strawberry jam.
  3. Always pat dry the strawberries with a kitchen paper so that there´s no liquid coming to the tartlets besides the jelly.
  4. You can use mixed fruits instead of only strawberries for these tartlets.
  5. You can always store pre-baked tartlet crusts without fillings as they are easy to make when an unexpected visitor will come to your house.

Strawberry Farm Open For The Public

Me, harvesting in a strawberry farm.

Freezing Strawberries

Harvesting Strawberries

Summer is fast approaching and it is time for me to harvest some strawberries in a strawberry farm open for the public. I love harvesting strawberry with my friend and her small children for our own enjoyment. While harvesting, we could eat some of the strawberries without them being counted.

We just go there in the strawberry farm, the owner weight our bowl or basket before we go to the fields. When we have finished harvesting, the weight of the bowl or basket will be deducted to the kilos of strawberries we have to pay. Of course, self harvesting strawberries is more fun than just buying these fruits in the market. Besides that, it is cheap.

Have you harvested strawberries in a farm for fun? I hope you have. Thanks for reading this hub. Enjoy your day!

Hi Peggy!

It´s nice to see you again in my hub. Yes, this recipe is so simple and handy to make. Sometimes I just buy the crust in the bakery and some strawberries in the supermarket before my guests come for a quick visit. I am glad I have brought back some wonderful memories of yours picking strawberries in the fields. Thanks for your visit and enjoy the new month of September.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on August 26, 2016:

That would be delicious and simple to make especially when buying pre-made crusts. The photo of you in that strawberry field made me think of when my hubby and I lived in central Wisconsin back in the 70s. I used to go strawberry picking each summer with my neighbor. We would eat them fresh but also freeze them to have on hand much of the year. Yum!

Hi Rachel L Alba! "Without baking" is very catching indeed. Thanks for your nice comment and for the stars and all your votes. I hope you will try this recipe. Enjoy your week! God bless you, too.

Rachel L Alba from Every Day Cooking and Baking on May 26, 2015:

Hi Thelma, the words, "without baking" caught my eye. I don't have central air-conditioning so my kitchen gets so warm and muggy in the summer, that I try not to use it at all. So anything I can make without baking or cooking on the stove, is tops with me. This dessert looks scrumptious. Thanks for sharing. I tired to click on 5 stars but it only comes up 4.5. Voted up and awesome.

Blessings to you.

Thelma Alberts (author) from Germany on May 26, 2015:

Thanks for the recipe. Good instructions, good pictures and great expectations.

Thelma Alberts (author) from Germany on May 25, 2015:

Yes, I agree with you Suzie. Having these tartlets pre-baked cases in the kitchen cupboard is a good way to make simple but delicious snacks. Thanks for your wonderful comment and for the 5 star vote for this recipe. Highly appreciated. Have a lovely week. Take care!

Suzanne Ridgeway from Dublin, Ireland on May 25, 2015:

Thanks Thelma I really enjoyed the simplicity of these tartlets! Amazing how a few simple ingredients when put together in a certain way can suddenly look amazing. The prepacked cases are well worth having in the cupboard for those last minute deserts and unexpected visitors. Fun for kids to make too.

5 star for me all the way!!

Thelma Alberts (author) from Germany on May 25, 2015:
