This Easy Caramel Tarts recipe will become your new go to dessert!
Ok, so there isn’t a lot (or any!) cooking involved in this easy Caramel Tarts recipe, but what if lacks in cooking steps, it sure makes up for it when it comes to being a quick, simple and most importantly delicious dessert!
I was first introduced to the idea for this recipe for my Aunty around 20 years ago (eek, I’m old!) when she made a similar version in a large sweet pastry tart shell. While I’ve made her original version quite a few times over the years (as it really is the quickest dessert to make) I do really like using these mini pastry tart shells instead as it’s much easier to serve and you also don’t have to share 😉
It’s best to leave these easy Caramel Tarts to chill in the fridge for an hour or so before eating, but I would highly recommend that you enjoy them within a day of making them, as the pastry may begin to go a little soft.
