Foody Thursday – Busy Mommy’s Caramel Tartlets

This is a perfect dessert for those situations when kids are searching all cupboards with huge eyes full of disappointment: "Mom, there is nothing sweet to eat…"


You will need:

1 package of frozen, ready to bake mini pie shells – I think there is about 50 of them in the package and you could get them at any grocery store

1 can of sweetened condensed milk – needs to be caramelized in advance – place a can in a large pot of water and boil for 2 hours. Tip: you could do a few cans at a time and then store them for up to 6 month. Just pick the cans that need a can-opener, those with a little ring on top might explode during boiling

500 gr (1 package) of either 35% whipping cream or 30% sour cream

1 cup melted chocolate (optional)

Various berries and nuts for garnish

Step 1: bake mini pie shells (instructions on the package) usually 200C for 10 minutes and let cool

Step 2: using mixer, beat whipping cream or sour cream with caramelized condensed milk (make sure all ingredients are cold) – about 10 minutes, or until the filling is steady

Step: 3 fill the shells. Confectioner's bag will make it faster, but spoon is fine too

Step 4: Decorate: pipe melted chocolate, use nuts, berries, sprinkles, shredded coconut – whatever your heart desires

Step: 5 – Enjoy!

  1. Haha, I was thinking, “my mom would’ve just said, ‘TOUGH!'”

    Those do look tasty. Could you caramelize them in another way? I’m just worried about boiling a can… never did that before.
