Easy Raspberry Tarts Recipe - Bite Sized Buttery Crunch

The buttery crunch of the tart combined with the smooth, fruity center of the preserves is a delicious combo that’s not overly sweet. This raspberry tarts recipe makes mini muffin sized tarts.

A food processor is ideal, but you can also use a pastry blender and some elbow grease to make the dough. Either way gets you the same scrumptious bites; one way just takes a little longer.

I am going to bookmark this recipe for raspberry tarts. I think this would make a lovely treat to serve my mom and grandma on Mother's Day next month. If it is a success to them we may try to make mango tarts. My grandma has a mango tree and my aunt likes to use the mangoes to make jam.
