When I was preparing these my husband thought they were too simple, not a 'real' dessert, he thought they would be ordinary. But once he tried it, he loved it and wanted more. Actually the only complaint I got from my family is that I didn't make enough, they all wanted more.
This takes about 30 minutes from preparation to completion, which I love on busy days. Another thing I love is that it is made with ingredients I always have in my house, so they can be whipped up for breakfast, as a sweet snack or like tonight a quick dessert.
Try these, you will not be disappointed.
Makes 6 tarts
1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
1/4 cup cream cheese, at room temperature
1 tablespoon strawberry jam
1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries
Icing sugar, for dusting
Preheat oven to 200C. Line a baking tray with some baking paper.
Cut the puff pastry into 6 rectangles (first cut into 3 long rectangles, then cut each long rectangle in half). Place on your prepared baking tray.
Using a sharp knife score a rectangle shape 1 1/2cm from the edge (do not cut through the pastry, just lightly score it). Using a fork prick the centre of the pastry inside of the rectangle.
In a small bowl, mix together the cream cheese and the jam. Place a dollop of the cream cheese mixture into the centre of each pastry, spread out within the scored area.
Arrange the sliced strawberries over the cream cheese mixture.
Bake for 15-17 minutes or until golden and puffed.
