A Recipe A Day in May: Lasco Food Drink Strawberry Tart
Lasco Food Drink Strawberry Tart
With homeschool in full swing, there has to be an element of fun to keep the kid’s attention.
From homework to video games, a dash of colour in the kitchen, plus the added element of surprise after a meal is completed – keeping the munchkins entertained is also more plausible.
“Getting the kids involved in the kitchen is always a fun learning experience. I’ve found that cooking and baking are great ways to show the younger ones how their Math and English lessons can apply in real-world scenarios,” explained Danielle Cunningham, beverage marketing manager at Lasco Distributors Limited.
She continued “Lasco has always been big [on] family values and creating products that can be used in a variety of ways.”
“While we’re all at home, I think it is important to prepare meals together as a family as it helps maintain that spirit of support and normalcy that is needed in the home space during this period of uncertainty”.
The Lasco Food Drink Strawberry Tart takes 60 minutes to prepare and serves 24, so you can monitor the sweet tooth obsession, and have plenty to share.
These tartlets are made to last!
½ cup Lasco Food Drink Vanilla
½ cup cold Lasco Soft Margarine
2 tbsp cold iCool Water
1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
¼ cup Granulated sugar
1 egg yolk
¼ tsp Vanilla
Lasco Strawberry Custard
2 packs of Lasco Food Drink Strawberry
¼ cup cold Lasco Soft Margarine
¾ cup Granulated Sugar
½ tsp salt
2 cups iCool Water
2 large egg yolks
1 ½ tsps Vanilla
Grease 24 tart shells or cupcake pans.
Combine Lasco Food Drink Vanilla, flour and sugar then pinch with cold Lasco Soft Margarine until the mixture looks like large breadcrumb pieces. Whisk together egg yolk, iCool Water and vanilla until combined. Add to the flour mixture and mix until a dough is formed. Place in a bowl and let sit for 20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a saucepan, combine Lasco Food Drink Strawberry, iCool Water, sugar, salt and egg yolks, whisk to combine, then put to boil. Stir constantly to avoid burning. Once mixture is thick, remove from heat and add Lasco Soft Margarine and vanilla. Allow to cool.
Roll tart dough about ¼ inch thick and cut out 3 inch circles then place into tart or cupcake pans. Place oven-safe plastic wrap inside the tart shells and fill with rice or peas to hold their shape. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove plastic wrap with rice or peas weight and place tart shell back in the oven until golden brown (5-8 minutes). Allow to cool.
Spoon strawberry mixture into tart shells, garnish and allow to set. Serve.
