- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg yolk
- 2 tablespoons ice water
- 1 cup fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
- 1/4 cup strawberry jam
- 1 tablespoon powdered sugar (for dusting)
- In a food processor, combine the flour, cold butter cubes, sugar, and salt. Pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the egg yolk and ice water. Slowly add this mixture to the food processor while pulsing, until the dough comes together.
- Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead it gently a few times to bring it together. Shape it into a disk, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Roll out the chilled dough on a floured surface and cut it into mini tart shells using a round cookie cutter or a glass. Press the dough into mini tart pans.
- Bake the tart shells for about 15 minutes or until they are golden brown. Let them cool completely.
- Fill each tart shell with sliced strawberries and brush them with strawberry jam for a glossy finish.
- Dust the tarts with powdered sugar for that charming final touch.
