Baby Shower Finger Food

Sweet Mini Tarts

Tartlets are an easy finger food idea for a baby shower. To make, simply buy some baked mini tart shells, and fill with a sweet filling of your choice.

Here’s A Few Easy Tartlet Filling Ideas

* Jello-pudding – There are some great flavors available to choose from, these include, vanilla, chocolate, and butterscoth.

* Lemon curd – This would be a nice choice for small tarts served at a Lemon, Daisy, or a perhaps a Summer Themed Baby Shower.

* Pie filling – This is readily available in a variety of fruity flavors so you’re sure to find something you like.

* A little strawberry jam topped with clotted cream – A deliciously indulgent filling, and just perfect for parties.

* Whipped cream sprinkled with chocolate powder – These are sure to be a hit with your shower guests.

* A small amount of red current jelly with a creamy topping – To make the topping, simply whip heavy (double) cream until stiff, then stir in a few drops of vanilla extract, and a little sugar.

* Lemon cheesecake – To make, put 8 ounces of cream cheese into a mixing bowl, and beat until creamy. Gradually add 2 cups of milk and mix until well blended. Then add 1 pk of lemon instant pudding, and beat again for one minute. After that simply pour the lemony mixture into your pastry shells, and chill well.

* Lemony mascarpone topped with small fruits – To make, put 6 ounces of mascarpone cheese, the grated zest of an unwaxed lemon, and 3 tablespoons of lemon curd, into a mixing bowl, and mix together well. Next spoon the lemony mixture into your tart shells. Then top with some fruit of your choice. Maybe some blueberries, strawberries, grapes, or blackcurrants. Finish with a light sprinkling of confectioners sugar (powdered sugar or icing sugar).

Cooks Tip

You can of course make your own mini tart shells using homemade or store-bought pastry, or alternatively buy unbaked ones and bake them before filling. Also, don’t forget that there are lots of little tarts with all kinds of delicious fillings available to buy too.
