How to Make Mini Strawberry Tarts

For full details on how to make these Mini Strawberry Tarts, see the recipe card down below 🙂

1. Make Crust

In a small bowl, combine all ingredients for crusts until moist. Divide evenly between the 4 individual tart pans and press into the bottom and up the sides. {I used 4 x .75 inch mini tart pans by Wilton…found them at Walmart.} Place into the refrigerator to harden.

2. Make Filling

In the mean time, whip cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and salt together until combined. Slice strawberries.

3. Top with Strawberries

When you are ready to assemble, remove tarts from refrigerator and spread cream cheese filling into the bottom on each tart, being careful to not get any crumbs into the filling. Arrange sliced strawberries into a maple leaf on top. {Easier said then done!} Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
