COOL WHIP Tartlets!

 As the resident cake decorator/pastry person in the family, I always find myself biting off more than I can chew in the dessert department.  And with BBQ season in full swing, I almost always have flour on my face and something in the oven.  For those of you with little ones around, you understand how difficult getting anything done is with them at your feet, let alone slaving over a hot oven.  And so, I've concocted an absolutely scrumptious BBQ must have, that doesn't require a whole lotta elbow grease and is sure to please everyone who gets their paws on it.

First things first.  No summer dessert would be complete with out some COOL WHIP whipped topping.  In fact, I'm pretty sure COOL WHIP makes every type of dessert better!  My Fresh Fruit Tartlets are no exception. The best part of this summertime dessert?  People can't believe you didn't spend hours putting them together.  Even better part?  Takes about a half an hour from start to finish. Follow these steps and you'll have yourselves a dozen of these babies.

For the flaky tart dough, I whipped up a quick pastry - made primarily of items I already had in my pantry.  If you're short on time, you can use frozen puff pastry dough or ready made tart shells.

After preparing and chilling your pastry dough, roll it out and press neatly into greased tart shell tins.  If you do not have tart shell tins, feel free to press dough into the bottom of a greased cupcake or muffin pan.  Same effect, but a little less fancy.

Bake @ 350º until slightly brown (approx:12 minutes)

 Once your tart shells have baked and cooled, you're ready to dress them up a bit.  Pull out the remainder of your ingredients and get artsy.

I found that using an ice cream scoop was the best method of filling the tart shells with COOL WHIP.  From there, I sliced and diced and prepared to impress! Take a look at the finished product!
