Easy Salted Caramel Tartlets

Easy Salted Caramel Tartlets are literally the perfect bite…. to me that is!

The Easy Salted Caramel Tartlets are sweet, but not too sweet, buttery, creamy, sticky, crumbly and then that little hint of salt at the end. Enough to make your resistance crumble and grab a second one.

Add to the dry ingredients and mix until the pastry comes together in a ball. Rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 180 C. When ready to bake the tartlet shells. Roll out the pastry to about 3 mm thick. Use a cookie cutter slight bigger than your tartlet pan and cut out circles.

Line the pastry cases with silicone paper and fill the shell with rice or beans. Place tartlet pans on a baking sheet and “blind bake” shells for 5-7 minutes. Remove from the oven. Remove the rice and silicone paper and bake a further 8-10 minutes or until the pastry shells are light golden brown. Cool until needed.
