Strawberry Tartlets

 I am having one of my all-time favorite desserts that I've been making for over 48 years, only this time I made the Strawberry Pie  into tartlets.  When you slice into a strawberry pie, it doesn't keep very well, and starts to get watery very quickly.  Making individual tartlets kept the filling fresher, and stayed for several days.  The daisies in my lady vase are from my garden.  I started with three plants years ago, and now I have a whole row of them on the side of my house.


 Isn't this strawberry snack set so pretty?  My sweet friend,  Linda, gave it to me for my birthday one year.  I love it for eating my breakfast from, for lunchtime, or snack time.  


 Linda also gave me the pedestal plate, which also has a larger one that goes underneath, to form a tiered pedestal.   It comes in handy for so many things.  If you'd like the recipe for the strawberry pie, check it out here.  I've made that recipe more times than you can imagine!  This time, the filling made enough for 9 little graham cracker tartlets.  I was able to take some to my neighbor for a birthday treat.  

 Look at my cutie pie littlest grand!  Isn't she sweet?

My youngest son, Kevin, took Harper and me to the Crayola Experience.  My oh my, and what an experience it was.  We spent almost 5 hours there!!  I am grateful and most appreciative for whenever I am invited to share joy in the lives of my family.  

 

I am sharing this with these lovely  parties:

Thank you for your visit!  xo

  4. Oh, what a pretty tea time today! Your snack set is so pretty. I can't wait for our berries to come out which should be any day now. I no longer make strawberry pie for the same reason as you. The tartlets are a better way to serve them, I think, and they look delicious! Your littlest granddaughter is adorable! You are making lots of memories with your family and there's nothing better! Have a beautiful day, my sweet friend. Hugs...Sandi

  5. The Crayola Experience...hmmm, new to me! This reminds me of the delicious strawberry pie you shared. I didn’t have to worry about it lasting several days because it didn’t make it to the second day. ☺️ And John loved it!

  13. That makes so much sense!!!!!!!! I do that with fruit cobblers because they tend to dry out quickly, but it makes sense for pies that get runny, too!!! Noted!

  16. Mmmm...those strawberry tarts look so delicious and your table is just beautiful. Daisies add the perfect touch to any vignette of any color and they look especially lovely with the red and white polka dots. That sweet grandbaby is so adorable and I am glad you enjoyed some sweet time with your son and his family. Enjoy the rest of your week, Kitty!

  17. Nothing is cuter than strawberries and daisies! I often make the little tarts mostly for portion control, but they do seem to stay fresher longer. What is the Crayola experience?

  18. You have attractively styled your table for those delicious looking tarts. I love recipes that are tried and true.
    Your little grand baby is adorable. Your Crayola experience sounds amazing.

  20. Those strawberry tartlets look absolutely, positivity delicious!!
    I agree with you, the tarts last much longer than a pie.
    Your youngest grand is darling, and what a great time at the crayola experience you must have had.

    Bless you~

  21. Oooo, Kitty, this post is just full of sweetness! From that precious beautiful grandbaby to those luscious looking tarts along with the lovely luncheon set from your friend. Just happiness, from beginning to end!
    I haven't made a strawberry pie in years but I'm tempted to try your tartlets just so I can easily share them with others. Thanks for the idea!

  22. Kitty, I think you're right, the little tarts make a lot more sense than a whole pie that isn't going to be eaten right away. And I'm a sucker for the "cute factor" of individual desserts.

  23. Kitty, I don't know how you stay so thin. :) fruit tarts of any kind are one of my favorites. These sure do look yummy! I have been going to make a strawberry pie for a couple weeks now, but haven't gotten around to it. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
