Happy Mother’s Day to all your Mothers out there!
I hope you have an amazing weekend! And for those of you who still want to prepare a little treat for their Mothers I want to show you what I would have made for my mum if she would live just a little closer…
Strawberry and Rose Tartelettes.
Tartelettes are little tarts, that means small individual treats for your mum and the rest of the family 😉
For this Mother’s Day treat I succeeded to combine my two trademark features for Mother’s Day: Roses and Strawberries. I still had some left over dried roses which I also already used in my Rose Pralines and I decided to make a little tea and use this to flavor my strawberry filling. I bought my dried roses in a kitchen store but I have seen them also in pharmacies or tea shops. If you can’t find dried roses to make the tea in the first place, you can substitute it by using a little rosewater. But be careful as rosewater has a much more intense flavor than the brewed tea as the flavor is much more concentrated. Using rose tea to flavor the strawberry filling gives you just a hint of rose and it is very subtle, so if you like rose flavor feel free to add some additional rosewater to the tea. You are free to make it as strong or weak as you like.
The little tarts will turn out just firm enough to cut them and they hold their shape and just sweet enough without being too sweet. The strawberries really are the hero in those little tarts and I hope you (your mum) will like them 🙂
