Lent 2021: a variety of recipes for lean tartlets

If you want to please your family or friends with interesting, delicious and easy-to-prepare snacks, but you do not know what would be so original to come up with for Lent, you have come to the right place. In our article, you will find some great options for your homemade tartlets.

The dough can be shortbread. You can make tartlets from puff pastry. By the way, without molds, they are even faster to make: the dough needs to be rolled out and cut into squares, and then form boats from them, pinching the edges and leaving room for the filling in the middle. Or instead of homemade tartlets, you can buy ready-made puff pastry.

Tartlet Dough Recipe

Decided to make the dough with your own hands? We suggest you try the recipe for tartlet dough, which is prepared very easily and quickly, and is also suitable for absolutely any filling. You will need only 3 ingredients: butter, flour and boiling water.

  1. Take the vegetable oil and pour it with boiling water in a ratio of 1 to 2.
  2. Immediately add the flour, it needs so much to make the dough cool.
  3. Knead the dough first in a bowl, and then transfer to the table. It will take about 20 minutes for the dough to rest.
  4. After that, you need to roll it out thinly, cut out circles a little larger than your molds.
  5. Put these circles in the molds and smooth them out well.
  6. Bake the baskets for 5-10 minutes in the oven at 180 degrees.
  7. Before adding the filling, the tartlets should cool completely.

Mushroom tartlets

For mushroom tartlets, you need to prepare a puree, not too liquid in consistency. Fry the mushrooms and onions in a frying pan. Take the tartlets and put the mashed potatoes in each one first, and the mushrooms on top. You can decorate the tartlets with herbs or olives.

With this filling, tartlets made of puff pastry are well combined.
