With ready-made green tea spread as your filling, you only need to concentrate on making them awesome tart shells (or even better, frozen pre-made ones!). This green tea spread tastes strongly of fragrant green tea leaves, and have a sweet undertone, hence we will highly recommend to make small tarts, or top them with some meringue, so that you or your guests won’t be too overwhelmed by the sweetness.

What’s in this recipe?
- Green Tea Spread – Osulloc Green Tea Milk Spread is of the perfect consistency and taste profile for this tart. It is not too runny nor hard, and of the right sweetness in this bite-sized treat!
- Butter, Sugar, Egg, Flour – The basics for tart dough. Before baking, it is necessary to chill the dough in order to keep the butter cold. This is the key to having flaky tarts! Cold fat melts and creates steam as the pastry bakes, and raises the flour into crispy layers.
- Cocoa Powder – This tones down the sweetness of the tart with a tinge of bitterness, and this balanced profile is what makes you keep wanting for more for the tarts without feeling like it’s too much.
