Rustic Tartlets Filled with Dulce de Leche, Strawberries, and Mango


You’ve got to love a dessert that looks impressive, tastes unbelievable, but that’s actually quite simple to make. These juicy, sweet tartlets are exactly that. Baked, then filled with a creamy dulce de leche filling and topped with fresh strawberries and mangos, these little bites are ideal for a buffet or party, as you can fill a couple of hours before your guests arrive. (I have made these numerous times, especially for our cookbook signings!)


The dulce de leche is the secret ingredient that sets these tarts apart. It’s a milky marvel from south of the border and literally translates to milk jam. Dulce de leche looks and feels a lot like caramel, but the flavors are more complex and the sweetness is less overwhelming.

    What beautiful tartlets! Ummm–Dulce de Leche. I’ve never made it myself, but I have loved it anytime I’ve been served. I would love to really perfect these little cuties so I could be comfortable with making them often. They look so pretty!

    I wouldn’t have thought to use dulce de leche with strawberries and mangoes- it sounds wonderful. I think small tart pans are my next purchase — I’ve been using a muffin tin instead but love the shape of your tarts. What a great dessert!

    How cute they look, and anything with dulce de leche has to be good. Great idea.

      Thank you Aunt Clara. I agree when it comes to dulce de leche — it’s my guilty pleasure and have a spoon of it every time I’m craving something sweet 😉
