Whereas, moreover, often the classic donuts are not the favorite sweets from children, with these tarts can easily offer a sweet good and simple enough to be fully appreciated by the whole family.

To prepare these tarts to the cream I chose a base made with short pastry oil, simple, soft and lighter than the traditional one, but the fact remains that you can also use a classic shortbread, butter. The short pastry oil has the advantage, in addition to being lightweight, to be also suitable in cases of intolerance to milk proteins; in this case for the custard choose a soy milk or lactose.
