Cheat’s Strawberry Tart

Strawberry tart

With the Puff Pastry I had left over from making Easy Chicken and Mushroom Pie, I decided not to waste it and made these delicious Strawberry Tarts. They take no time at all to assemble, the pastry just needs to be cooked first.

a little strawberry jam

1 carton ready made custard

4 large/ 8 small ripe strawberries, sliced


  • Roll out the pastry into one large round or fill 4 small tart tins
  • Bake the pastry blind in the oven until lightly browned, approximately 20-30 minutes, allow to cool
  • Melt the jam for a few seconds in the microwave (not on full power or it will set!) and then brush onto the base of the tarts
  • Cover the tarts with the custard and then the slices of strawberries
  • Enjoy!
