Strawberry tart ^^


I'm not sure what has come over me, but I seem to be on a baking (not to mention cooking!) overdrive this month!

It's just 2 weeks into march, and I have already baked more than I usually do in two months! Let's see, I made a japanese cheesecake, a marmalade butter cake, vanilla cupcakes, chez panisse almond tart, french onion tart, strawberry cupcakes, danish butter cookies, pizza bread, strawberry daifuku and now, strawberry tarts! And I'm still craving..! I think I'm possessed (by greed and gluttony!)!!!


So I'm going to make a conscious effort to stop.. er, slow down. ^^


If you're in the mood for some yummy berry tartlets, head to pickyin's for her tarte framboises recipe. I halved the recipe and still ended up with 1 16cm-round tart, 2 small rectangular tarts, and 3 baby tartlets ~ and that's quite a lot! ^^

Hello Hui
Your strawberry tart looks so sweet; especially those mini ones! My sister loves to bake strawberry tarts very similar like yours (wish I could show you the picture of her tart) Oh, over baked this month? That's mean I won't be seeing your baked posts for the next few weeks? Im sure you can go ahead to bake ~ well you can always cut to half of the recipe/ingredients; just like this strawberry tart and just made enough of few mini ones, right? And you didn't over eat of the extra.

the same usually happens to me, when I get inspired (or crave something), I will bake like a mad woman! Your tarts look awesome though!

thanks for the confidence, mel! i do try my hardest to bake smaller portions and then pass most of it out ^^ though there have been times when i had the whole cake to myself ^^||

i think i've been doing just that, chef! till i realized my 2nd home could be the baking supplies store and breakfast is a choice between cheesecake, tarts and cakes! i'm trying real hard not to think what all this could do to my heart! haha!

Awww so cute! I especially love those mini ones! I wish I can bake more often, so I'm just jealous that you've been baking a lot. :) I wish I'm your neighbor... ;)

if you were my neighbour, i wouldn't be baking as much, nami! 'cos i'll always be by the window smelling the goodies coming over from your place! if not already parked at your dining table! haha!
