August 11, National Raspberry Tart Day

Last week Frank had a hankering to make wee raspberry tarts.  He described to me the type of crust he wanted as "somewhere in between pie and a cookie." A short time later BBCA showed a cooking competition making "sweet paste."  Perfect.

Take your raspberries


And smash them with some sugar.



Make your sweet pastry dough.  (Flour, butter, sugar, egg.)  I don't remember which recipe he used.



A pint glass is perfect for cutting out the circles.


 Press the circles into muffin pans.  I think he got 22.


 Bake till golden brown.


Fill and enjoy.

Yum! Those look fabulous! I've never made tarts. Might just have to give them a try!

Nice! Maybe a little squirt of whipped cream on top?
