Mini Berry Tarts

Fill these tarts with seasonal berries for a quick go-to dessert.


  • 2 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • mixed berries
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of oil
  • a sachet of baking powder
  • lemon peel


  1. Sift the flour into a large bowl, add the eggs and the sugar, then mix everything.
  2. Stir in the cup of oil and the baking powder, add the zest of one lemon peel and knead the dough until it reaches a proper consistency.
  3. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Working on a clean surface, roll the pastry dough into a circle, cut it and flatten into small disks to fit small tart molds.
  4. Pop crusts in oven for 3-5 minutes. Remove and add berries. Put back in oven until mini tarts are golden, about 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
