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.
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
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.
