How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oven to 375°F.  Lightly grease 24 (2 1/2-inch) muffin-pan cups.

Step 2

Unfold 1 pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface.  Roll the pastry sheet into a 9x12-inch rectangle.  Cut into 12 (3-inch) squares.  Repeat with the remaining pastry sheet, making 24 in all.  Press the pastry squares into the muffin-pan cups. Brush with the egg.

Step 3

Bake for 10 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.  Remove the pastry cups from the pan and let cool completely on wire racks.

Step 4

Mix the pudding mix and milk in a medium bowl according to the package directions.  Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Step 5

Spoon about 1 tablespoon pudding mixture into each pastry cup.  Top with the fruit.  Sprinkle with the confectioners’ sugar.

Recipe Tips

  • To make 12 larger pastries: Substitute 2 packages (10 ounces each) Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Shells for the pastry sheets. Prepare the pastry shells according to the package directions.  Spoon about 2 tablespoons pudding mixture into each pastry shell.  Top with the fruit. Sprinkle with the confectioners' sugar.

    Vanilla Fruit Tarts

    I've made these twice now. The first time I followed the recipe to a tee. My husband really liked them, but I wanted it a little sweeter. The secnd time instead of using flour to roll out the dough, I used sugar. I also sprinkled sugar in each little cup instead of using the egg wash. I filled them with pudding and topped them with strawberries. These were so AWESOME!

    I made these tarts for a church dinner, and they were such a hit! I used blueberries and sliced strawberries on mine, and everyone talked about how cute and delicious they were!
