Strawberry Tartlets

This elegant-looking dessert is easy to make, and the cute wonton "cups" can be made in advance. They're a different way to present fresh strawberries when entertaining. The recipe is easy to double, too.

    My daughter helped me make these. They were so cute and delicious. I am going to save this recipe to make for my next gathering. Simple and beautiful dessert.

    Quick little desserts in no time at all. I had no Mascarpone so I used Cream cheese. If you want more of an Orange taste you may want to add some Orange Zest. The filling is light and creamy. And I love the way the baked brown sugar adds a nice crunchy Brittle taste to the bottom of the tarts. I would suggest cooling the tarts before filling.I also agree that theses should be prepared and eaten on the same day *Impressive and no one would guess how easy they are to makeJanieTaste of Home Volunteer Food Editor.

    My 15 year old daughter made these for us one night. She made a couple of changes because of what we had on hand. Didn't have mascarpone, so used cream cheese. She added a touch of vanilla also.. LOVED them. Ran out today and bought more to make some for 4th of July tomorrow.. Keep the great recipes coming!!!!

    I made the wontons today and they turned out beautiful! I have covered them with alight weight towel. I will make the filling &strawberries on Monday to take to my group that evening. Question: Is it necessary to put the shells in the refrigerator before I put in the filling Monday afternoon. And once they are filled,will they get soggy if I placed the finishedproduct in the refrigerator until our group meeting?

    These are great and easy to make. They can be made faster if you use the frozen tarts instead of the wonton wrappers. My guest loved them.

    These are elegant to serve, easy to make and taste unbelievably wonderful. No one can resist them. Make a quadruple batch because you will need it!
