Fuss-free, adorable mini tarts that taste good and only take five minutes to make.
I was practically giddy when I discovered these. I could just pop into the kitchen for five minutes and emerge like a master pastry chef.
And I love making them. People do make a habit of lingering – “oooh, can I try the creme patisserie?” – but they’re so easy, pretty and there’s minimal clear up. And there’s nothing I love more than whipping up a dessert that doesn’t end in an explosion of icing sugar smoke.
There’s a reason they’re so fast – you can pick up everything pre-made! M&S is the best place to head to; their All Butter Mini Tartlets are mouthwateringly smooth and crumbly. Another great thing is the creme patissiere and tartlets keep for quite a while, meaning you can whip them up if you have any last minute popping-over-for-tea visits, so long as you have some fresh fruit to hand.
Here’s how to make your own crowd-pleasing mini tarts.
Five-Minute Creme Patissiere Mini Fruit Tartlets

Pour your creme patissiere into a bowl and line up your mini tartlets. Using a spoon or a piping bag, fill your tartlets with creme patissiere. Top with fresh fruit of your choice, and serve.
