Easy Tartlet Recipe: How to Make Delicious Mini Tarts in Your Own Kitchen


Tartlets are miniature tarts that are perfect for parties, gatherings, or just as a sweet treat. If you’ve never made them before, they might seem intimidating, but with a little time and patience, you can easily make delicious tartlets at home. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to make the perfect tartlets.


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 cup ice water
  • Your choice of filling (e.g. fruit, chocolate, nuts, cream, etc.)


  1. In a food processor, pulse together the flour, butter, and sugar until the mixture resembles coarse sand. Add the egg yolk and pulse until the dough comes together. With the machine running, slowly add the ice water until the dough forms a ball.

  2. Remove the dough from the food processor and shape it into a disc. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate it for at least 1 hour, or until it is firm.

  3. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

  4. On a floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/8-inch thickness. Using a round cookie cutter or a glass, cut out circles of dough that are slightly larger than your tartlet pans. Gently press the dough circles into the pans, making sure to press the dough into the corners and edges. Trim any excess dough from the edges.

  5. Prick the bottoms of the tartlets with a fork and refrigerate them for about 15 minutes.

  6. Line the tartlets with parchment paper or foil and fill them with pie weights, dried beans, or rice. This will help prevent the tartlets from puffing up while they bake.

  7. Bake the tartlets for about 10-15 minutes, or until they are lightly golden. Remove the pans from the oven and carefully remove the parchment paper and weights. Set the pans aside to cool.

  8. Once the tartlets are cool, fill them with your choice of filling. Some ideas include fruit (such as berries, sliced stone fruit, or chopped apples), chocolate ganache, nuts, cream, or any other filling you like.

  9. If you’d like, you can also top the tartlets with a glaze or icing. Simply mix together a small amount of powdered sugar and a liquid (such as water, milk, or lemon juice) until it reaches your desired consistency.

Enjoy your homemade tartlets! They’re perfect for parties, gatherings, or just as a sweet treat. You can also make them ahead of time and store them in the fridge until you’re ready to serve them. Bon appétit!
