A tartlet is a small, single serving of a pie or tart. You can fill it with different fillings that you want, from fruits to other sweet and savory mixtures. In this recipe, it calls for sweet, nutty and fruity fillings. Though it is up to you if you want to change the toppings according to what you prefer. This is a great way to prepare for people on the go who have no time to stay at home longer than for dessert or snacks.

Notes

  • If you do not have cake crumbs or flour, you can substitute it with all purpose flour (superior class).
  • If you do not want to use apricot jam, you can choose whatever jam you prefer.
  • In place of shortening, you can use unsalted butter. If salted butter is available, disregard the salt.
  • Aside from raspberries, you can always use any other fruit toppings according to your liking.
