Easy Strawberry Tarts

There are all kinds of wonderful, super easy desserts out there. You don't have to spend a lot of time to have a great tasting, great looking dessert. This is one of the quickest desserts out there to make. You can make the crust rectangles either from scratch or use a store-bought pie crust pastry. You can also either make your own whipped cream or use stored bought whipped cream.

Easy Strawberry Tarts

1pie crust recipe or one box store bought pie crust
1 pint fresh strawberries, sliced
1/2 cup strawberry jam (preferably freezer jam, if possible)
1/4 tsp lemon zest
1 TBS sugar

1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1 TBS sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla

Prepare pie crust and cut into 4x5 inch rectangles. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or until nicely browned. Cool on a rack. Prepare strawberries by mixing the sliced strawberries, jam, sugar, and lemon zest. Set aside. Prepare whipped cream by mixing cream, sugar, and vanilla in a bowl. Whisk cream until it is nice and thick.

Prepare tarts by placing a crust rectangle on a plate. Spoon a generous scoop of strawberries onto the crust. Top with a scoop of whipped cream. Serve immediately.
