I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Strawberry Mint Tarts

Try this little twist on a strawberry tart.
Fresh mint is coming up in the garden and it's strawberry time.

12 pie tart shells
1 box vanilla pudding
3-4 drops peppermint extract
mint jelly
mint leaves to garnish

Either buy some ready-made tart shells or make them yourself and let cool.  I had some already baked and ready to go in the freezer.

Prepare the vanilla pudding and set aside.  You could use instant or the cooked variety.  Once made, whisk in the peppermint extract. If you use the cooked pudding, let it cool slightly then pour into shells.

When it's set slice strawberries and arrange on top.

Next microwave a couple of tablespoons of the jelly.

I like the one where you can see the chopped mint in it. Brush the tops of the tarts with melted jelly and garnish with a mint leaf.
