Cream & Cinnamon Tartlets


I  love lazy Sundays. Doing nothing else but making some cream and cinnamon tarlets for tea break. What could be better than appreciating a cup of Earl Grey or Infusion with some tartelettes/tarlets while reading the Sunday newspaper (trying to catch up with all the headlines).

Scanning through the bookshelf and picked up one of my French Dessert cookbooks, I randomly flipped through the pages and my eyes were fixed on the page where it says Mini-Tartelettes à la crème et à la Cannelle (Mini tarts with Cream and Cinnamon). Yum… I love Cinnamon.

Remember I made tartelettes/tarlets Les Petites Tartelettes au Fromage et aux Tomates before? But those are savoury tartelettes/tarlets. This time, tartelettes/tarlets are for dessert or rather afternoon tea. 🙂

So, I thought I would give it a try. They turned out really nice. There’s no other brilliant way to eat them over a cup of tea. Earl Grey is one of my favourites. J’adore le thé Earl Grey!
