Petal Tartlets

These are little tiny little tea cakes with a topping of preserves. They are cut with a scalloped cookie cutter or shaped in a scallop. They are kind of cute sitting next to a cup of tea as sparkling "flowers" to brighten your tea tray.


I leave them in the muffin cups, I think they are cute that way.
