This is a basic sweet dough for preparing tarts that can be filled with fig preserves, blackberries, bouille, coconut cream, pineapple, or sweet potato. The various recipes for the fillings can be found on our website.


  • 3 cups flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • filling of your choice


Step 1

Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and mix well.

Step 2

Add flour and baking powder, slowly, then slowly add milk and vanilla. Continue to mix well.

Step 3

Place in refrigerator for about 1 hour as dough will be too sticky to handle.

Step 4

After 1 hour, use a small saucer to cut dough into round shapes. Add 1 tablespoon of filling of choice. To cut dough, fold dough over filling and press down edges with a fork to seal.

Step 5

Bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Do not overcook!

Editor's note - You may add 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp nutmeg to the flour mixture. Other cooks will simply roll out the dough into the flour, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg mixture.
