Strawberry Almond Tarts
On a whim, I picked up a box of puff pastry last week at the grocery store. I don’t know why – I hadn’t planned to and I certainly didn’t need it for anything. It’s got way too many calories. But there it was, right next to the phyllo dough which I did have on my list. And somehow, into the cart it went.
Yesterday I decided maybe I should use some of it. What to make? I searched all around for a recipe that looked good and there were so many inspiring options. Tomato soup with puff pastry lids. Pear tarts. Blueberry turnovers. Fish en croute.
They all looked so good I couldn’t pick. Finally, I at least decided that I would do a dessert. I needed to go to the store last night after work anyway, so I figured I’d just see what fruit looked good and go from there. Strawberries ended up being the fruit of choice.
This was really a wingin’ it kind of recipe. An idea from here, something from there. But the end result was easy and delicious. For your enjoyment, then, I present Strawberry Almond Tarts.
