Easy Strawberry Tartlets

Easy Strawberry Tartlets

I’m yearning for spring after a winter storm reached its icy fingers down south and left a 3° windchill in it’s path.  Brr.

I decided to give spring a nudge by whipping up my easy strawberry tartlets.  Cream cheese, a touch of honey, brown sugar and strawberries come together to form an elegant dessert that sits inside a crisp wonton cup. It’s the perfect bite!  And it’s the ideal dessert for spring.


When I’m planning a party, I always try to include foods that are individually portion sized, easy to eat and doesn’t require a lot of fuss.  The wonton cups can be made in advance and filled right before your guests arrive.  The filling can also be made a day ahead and stored in the fridge.

This is my #1 recipe I turn to when I need a beautiful, tasty dessert and I’m short on time. Not only is it scrumptious, the bright colors assure me that winter will not last forever!

These elegant, crispy little tartlets filled with creamy, honey infused cream cheese and pretty, sliced strawberries are also perfect for Sunday brunch, a spring bridal shower, a tea party, Mother’s Day or you can keep them all to yourself.  I’ll never tell! Dress them up by adding a dollop of whipped cream and a tiny mint leaf. 

Easy Strawberry Tartlets are the ideal dessert for spring and summer!

Helpful Hint:  Think beyond strawberries. Once blueberry picking season arrives, I’ll make blueberry tartlets.  What about blackberries?  Yum!
