I often prepared these delicious individual summer tarts for lunch in the Perfect Endings Bakery Cafe. Combining the savory and the sweet makes a perfect, light and complete summer meal. Each tart starts with Puff Pastry dough, easily found in the freezer section of your grocery store, which makes it quite convenient. As well as simple and quick, you’ll find these tarts fresh, flavorful and visually exciting!
More a “preparation” rather than recipe, I gave Rachel the instructions and asked her to test them in her home and let us know what she thought about the preparation, the combinations and especially the flavor!
“I really enjoyed trying these two recipes (perhaps not as much as my husband). They complimented each other well, making the perfect duo. The savory tomato, pesto, mozzarella on puff pastry was simple to make and deliciously hearty. The crunch of the puff pastry alongside the tenderness of the tomato was divine. This savory treat is certainly a show stopper. It even impressed my two year old who was yelling “ooh,wow!” as I plated it for dinner.
The balsamic strawberry dessert was both sweet and tart making it a perfectly refreshing summer dessert. It was quick to make and is one of those desserts you end up craving! I thought this dessert was a good spin off of traditional strawberry shortcake. It could certainly be paired with some vanilla ice cream but I topped mine with whipped cream and a sprig of mint. It was light and enjoyed by the whole family. ” – Rachel
