    Simple strawberry tarts with white chocolate

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 20 minutes + cooling
    • Total time: 20 minutes + cooling

    Serves: 6


    100g white chocolate
    156g pack Waitrose 6 Sweet Pastry Cases
    100g mascarpone
    200ml essential Waitrose Reduced Fat British
    Crème Fraîche
    ½ tsp vanilla powder
    400g essential Waitrose British Strawberries, hulled and halved
    2–3 tbsp strawberry jam  


    1. Break the chocolate into a small heatproof bowl and sit over a pan of gently simmering water, stirring once or twice until melted. Remove from the heat and leave to cool to room temperature. Once cooled, brush a layer of white chocolate on the inside of each pastry case then leave to set.

    2. Meanwhile, beat together the mascarpone, crème fraîche and vanilla until well blended, then beat in the remaining melted white chocolate. Divide the mixture between the pastry cases.

    3. Arrange the strawberries cut-side down on the filling. Gently heat the jam with 1 tbsp water then brush over the strawberries to coat evenly. Leave to set, then serve. Best eaten on the day of making.

    Cook’s tip

    Mix things up by adding your favourite fruit to the tarts. Along with the strawberries, you could top each with sliced kiwi, peach and blueberries.
