Mini Grape Tarts

It’s still autumn, the wine is ready to be served, but it’s not too late to say that the key ingredient of this period is grapes. To highlight their taste I came up with these simple mini tarts, a light dessert topped with some fresh grapes.

You can replace the filling with your favorite cream, but vanilla pudding is ready in a few minutes, it’s very appropriate and handy for this recipe. The instant gelatin is required to prevent the oxidation of the fruits and it will also add a nice final touch to the tarts.

Ingredients:
for tart shells:
250 g flour
150 g butter
80 g powdered sugar
2-3 tablespoons cold water
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
for the filling:
1 package vanilla pudding
2 tablespoons butter
for decorations:
white and rose grapes
1 package of instant gelatin

How It’s Made?
Step 1: Mix the flour with the butter and the cocoa powder until well combined.
Step 2: Add the powdered sugar and water and mix until everything is firm.
Step 3: Divide the dough into balls and flatten slightly. Place each ball into a muffin cup and press up the sides.
Step 4: The dough will rise while baking, so press with a fork into the center of each shell. Bake for about 8-10 minutes.
Step 5: To prepare the filling, respect the instructions on your vanilla pudding package. When it’s done, allow the pudding to cool a little, then mix in 2 tablespoons of butter until smooth and creamy.
Step 6: Spoon some filling into each cooled mini tart shells and top with fresh grapes.
Step 7: Coat each tart with instant gelatin (prepared using the instructions on the package) and let them set.
