Recipe : Scottish Strawberry Tarts

Strawberries just make summer so if there’s one thing us Scots can do well is to add sugar to them to make them taste even better! Scottish strawberries are now in season and are perfectly ripe for a picnic, afternoon tea or for plonking in fizz or Pimms.

Going to the local bakery with my mum for a strawberry tart meant that summer was here, room temperature strawberries can’t be beat – OK add sugar glaze and it tastes amazing.  Cheat with ready made pastry or ready made pastry shells and shop bought glaze.  Whatever you do, enjoy these Scottish Strawberry Tarts.

The recipe is simple but I haven’t written out the full instructions for shortcrust pastry, just the ingredients, assuming that you can make this (or are cheating like me and using pre-made for this).
