Raspberry Tartlets

A hybrid between a shortbread cookie and a jam-filled pastry, these Raspberry Tartlets don’t require many ingredients are are a delightful handheld treat!

A SINGLE SERVING RASPBERRY RECIPE

Have you ever tried a tartlet? These Raspberry Tartlets are sort of like cookies with more depth. With a slightly crumbly shortbread-like crust and raspberry, you get so much flavor and texture in each and every bite. These are made in a jumbo muffin pan, instead of trying to find mini tart pans (which most folks rarely use), which makes it so much easier! If you enjoy those Raspberry Tartlets from Costco, then you are going to love these since they are a million times better!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

How do I know when the dough is ready?

This is a more of a crumbly dough (like a shortbread). If you grab some with your hands and it sticks together then it is ready.

Can I use another jam for the filling?

Yes! The possibilities for this are endless so they are great for any season! We chose raspberry for this recipe but you can use, grape, apricot, blackberry, strawberry, fig, etc. You can also use preserves or jelly if you want.

Do I have to use almond extract?

No, you can omit the almond altogether if you do not like it. I would add just a little bit more of the vanilla to make up for the flavoring.

What is the best way to press the dough into the tins?

While you can use your fingers, we like to use the bottom of a jar or measuring cup to really get it nice and flat and pressed in there.

Can I use a regular sized muffin tin?

Yes, if you do not own a jumbo muffin tin then a regular sized muffin pan will work. This should yield about 18 tartlets. You will want to cut your baking time down to 15-18 minutes.

Do I have to let these cool completely before removing?

Yes, this is highly recommended. This helps them set up completely.

How do I store leftovers?

These can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature where they will keep for up to 1 week. They can also be frozen. I suggest layering between wax paper in a freezer container. They will keep for up to 3 months in the freezer. To defrost, remove from the freezer onto the countertop until thawed.

INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (SEE RECIPE CARD BELOW FOR THE FULL RECIPE)

  • unsalted butter
  • granulated sugar
  • powdered sugar
  • vanilla extract
  • almond extract
  • all-purpose flour
  • kosher salt
  • seedless raspberry jam 
Ingredients needed:unsalted butter, granulated sugar, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, almond extract, all purpose flour, kosher salt and seedless raspberry jam.

HOW TO MAKE RASPBERRY TARTLETS:

Preheat the oven to 350℉. Spray a jumbo muffin tin with nonstick baking spray (like Baker’s Joy). Set aside. Cream butter, sugars, and extracts together for 1- 2 minutes. Add in the flour and mix just until combined. The mixture may still be a little crumbly. Do not over mix or the dough may become tough. Note: This doubles as a crumble topping too so you’ll use it for the cookie base and topping. Scoop about ¼ cup of the dough into each muffin well. Press into the bottom and up the sides a little, forming a well.

Crust ingredients mixed together and pressed into jumbo muffin pan.

Spoon ½-1 Tablespoon of raspberry jam into the center of each tartlet.

Raspberry jam added to top of crust.

Sprinkle each tartlet with 1 heaping Tablespoon of crumble topping.

Crust crumbles sprinkled over top of raspberry jam in tin.

Bake for 18-22 minutes or until lightly browned.

Let cool completely and then remove from pans. You may need a knife to run around the edge to help in popping them out.

    OMG, I made these tonight and they are absolutely delicious!! I didn’t have a jumbo muffin pan so I used the regular size and pressed a little over 1/8 cup in the bottom and slightly up the side, baked about 22 minutes until if was lightly browned. I will definitely be making this recipe again and since I’m new to your website I will also be looking at other recipes. Thanks for a great cookie!!

  2. hi Brandie…I have been making these tarts for quite a while now…this is the first time they bombed on me a bit and of all times Christmas…they didn’t want to come out of the muffin tins without crumbling…I have never had this happen before…any suggestions ? nit enough dough maybe for the bottom layer ? I did seem this time to have more leftover for the tops.. as I certainly sprayed them well with Bakers Joy baking spray.. please advise …thank you so very much and have a very Blessed Christmas

    I loved these tartlets. I made them in a mini tartlet pan, and they were just the right size for little bites. The dough was easy to use, but it was a little soft to crumble bits on top of the tartlets, especially since they were mini tartlets, so I added just a bit more flour to a small amount of dough and it worked perfectly. I used about one teaspoon of jam, some raspberry and some boisenberry.

  5. They tasted great, but not sure if there was a separate recipe for crumble. The shortbread crust does not crumble enough for a topping.

    1. Hi Lynda, I’m so glad you thought they tasted great! There isn’t a separate crumble recipe. The shortbread cookie crust just adds a little extra texture to the top but it’s not a crumble. Since you like the recipe, you could perhaps make a separate crumble to put on top if you like a crunchier topping. That would definitely work! 🙂
