I have made this two times now and the first time I did use the marzipan the first time and cut it thin turned out nice but far to sweet, I found it nicer the second time when I didn't use the marzipan also I folded the edges. Good all in all though.

Really tasty and easy to do, make sure your marzipan slices are thin though to avoid the tarts being too sweet.

I did these with pears instead of strwberries and they were lovely. Not much to them and they tasted great, I think that the pear works better with the almond flavour. Great.

I had the same idea last year, but then with prunes halves, cut size up, and no butter or almonds. It is really easy and makes a really quick and nice dessert!

I didn't expect these to be worth the fiddling required, but they were really very nice.
