Mini Fruit Tarts

(Meyveli Mini Tartolet)

Mini Fruit Tarts
18 mini tart shells ( Don't forget to bake before filling them!)

Filling (cream Pattisier):

1 egg
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp corn starch
150 ml 3.25% milk, warm

Whisk the egg with sugar in a small sauce pan. Add the vanilla extract and starch, whisk. Start to cook at medium low heat. Slowly add the warm milk, whisk constantly. When it gets thicker, cook for about one more minute while stirring. Turn the heat off. Place a paper towel across the top of the pot on the rim and cover. Let it cool down.

Fill the mini shells with the filling equally. Arrange the fruits over the tops and serve.

*If you like to make the pie crust, here is the recipe:)

Pie crust:
240 g all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
8 tbsp butter, unsalted
3-4 tbsp cold water
Mix the flour and salt in an another bowl . Cut the butter in small pieces with a knife or grate. The dough should be in crumbs. Stir in cold water, knead. Give a ball shape to the dough, wrap with plastic. It will be ready to use after half an hour in the fridge.

I love your site! I just got back from Istanbul last night and am looking for a recipe for the sweet spread used in the fruit waffles we ate on Istiklal at a Potatos place. Would the cream filling for your tart work, or is there a specific filling that is made? It is such a sweet spread, and not the same as pastry icing.

I do not know the filling that you had it at Potatos place:) But, you can give it a try...

Hello, Have a question about the filling. The equivalent of cornstarch, would it be something like gelatine possibly? There is no such a thing like corn starch in shops where I live so I was wondering what(if anything) could be used interchangably?

You can also use rice flour or wheat flour...

Oh thank you very much for your immediate answer, meanwhile I also inquired that potato flour( or starch) is also used to thicken the sauces so, as it is easily available around, i will try using it interchangably with this recipe.Greetings

HI, is it possible to use milfoy or yufka as crust?

If you are not able to find tart shells, I think you can use thin milfoy dough as crust. But you need to pierce the dough with the fork before you bake it in order to avoid the rise:)
