Strawberry Tarts

  • 6 puff pastry shells
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 container (3-1/2 oz) mascarpone or cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon cherry-flavored liqueur
  • 1 pint strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 1/2 cup strawberry jelly

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Bake the puff pastry shells according to the package directions. Cool them on a wire rack.

Meanwhile, in medium bowl, with electric mixer on high, beat the heavy cream and sugar until stiff peaks form. In a medium bowl, combine the cheese and liqueur; beat until soft. Fold the whipped cream into the cheese mixture. Place a few strawberry halves on the bottom of each shell; fill with the cream mixture. Top with the strawberry halves cut into a fan shape. In a small saucepan, over medium-low heat, cook the jelly with 2 teaspoons of water until it's melted. Brush the jelly over the strawberries. Garnish with the remaining strawberries.
