Two Tarts Part 1 - Raspberry Kiss

When I was making these I was thinking of two things:

  1. The song from Frankie goes to Hollywood "Two Tribes" but singing "When two tarts go to war ..."

  2. Yipee ... I get to stack my own tarts. After seeing little stacked tarts all over the blog world I decided to make a few too.

Both types are adapted from Lara's tarts.

I have been meaning to make these for a while. I actually even went out and bought a new silicon mini muffin tray to try out. They are so easy and perfect for parties or, as I thought, perfect for Soeri's Tiffin. So, when I saw these luscious organic raspberries at the market I knew the time had come to make those tarts.

They looked so cute when they came out of the oven that all I thought of was they had a breath of a kiss.

Now, I sit here with a few on my plate, watching "Dirty Dancing" (oh how I love this film) on TV and I share a few kisses with you.


Ingredients:
150g puff pastry
100g fresh raspberries
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger



Method:

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Using a form cut out circular shapes in the pastry. Line the muffin tray with the pastry.

In a mixing bowl add all the ingredients together and mash with a fork.

Fill the pastry forms with the raspberry mixture and bake for 20 minutes.



Verdict:
Well as Tom is out of town and Soeri will be getting a few in his lunch box tomorrow, it is up to me to give the verdict.
They are sweet and spicy - just like kisses. Because they are so tiny one is never enough - just like kisses. They leave a mist of fruity tanginess on your lips - just like kisses.

So, how do you like my kisses?

  2. Hi Nandita,

    I'll tell you this much ... at present I can't cook fast enough to be able to take the pics. Before, I cooked with ease and relaxed, now I want to cook everything at once so I can take the pictures. The new camera is freakin me out ;-)
