4 Ingredient Mini Strawberry Tarts Recipe

  • Author: Regan at This Baking Life
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 18 mini tarts


These Mini Strawberry Tarts are fun, easy to make, sweet treat. You only need 4 ingredients!


  • 1 (17.3-oz) pkg. frozen puff pastry, thawed to room temperature
  • 1 cup strawberry jam
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons half-and-half
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9-cup muffin tin with paper muffin liners; set aside.
  2. Unfold puffy pastry sheets, one at a time, onto a work surface. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut each puff pastry sheet into 9 equal squares for a total of 18 squares. Working in batches, fit pastry dough squares carefully into bottom and up sides of prepared muffin tin. Top each of the tart crusts with a scant tablespoon of strawberry jam. Bake in preheated oven until jam is slightly set and crust is golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool; repeat process with paper muffin liners, remaining squares and remaining jam. Let all tarts cool completely.
  3. Combine 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 1 tablespoon half-and-half in a small bowl, adding more powdered sugar and half-and-half, as needed, to achieve desired consistency. Drizzle* over cooled tarts. Store in an airtight container.


An important note about the “look” of these tarts. Depending on how much strawberry jam oozes out onto the paper muffin liners while baking, you may prefer to remove them from the “baking” liners and place in a “clean” liner before serving.

*The best way to drizzle, in my opinion, is to spoon your icing into a zip-loc bag, snip the corner, and drizzle. You get a thinner, prettier drizzle versus trying to spoon the icing on. (Or obviously, you can use a piping bag, if you have one.) 

**Variation: If you’d like to make these as Chocolate Strawberry Tartlets, skip the powdered sugar icing. Instead, combine 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream in a small mixing bowl. Microwave on HIGH in 15-second intervals until melted. Drizzle over cooled tartlets.
